When: Saturday, October 10th, 11am-5pm

Bring: Water, safety glasses, closed toe shoes, (preferably) long pants, work gloves, bug spray, any tools you like to use (especially loppers and small cutting tools, or flat shovels if you love berms), a signed waiver.

Dirt Riders Of Pupukea Paumalu Trail Day

From the Dirt Riders Of Pupukea Paumalu:

Howzit Gang,

Due to her popularity, Hula Girl is in desperate need of a make over.

We are scheduling a trail work day for this Saturday, Sept 5. Meeting at the Sunset Hills trailhead at 8 AM. Or you can meet us at Lilikoi Junction at 8:30 AM.

We will focus all of our attention on Hula Girl. There are several sections that need attention.

We could really use your help.

We will have tools but we ask you to bring any tools that you have that may be helpful; shovel, McLoed, Pulaski, Pick, Loppers, Weed whacker, etc.

We will have two bike trailers to haul in tools, but we’ll need to hand carry some tools also.

We plan to work till early afternoon, but feel free to help out for any amount of time that you have.

Please reply to dropphawaii@gmail.com so we know who’s coming and how many tools to bring. Also please let us know if you plan to bring any of your own tools.

Mahalo!

Thank you to all who came up on Sunday to help with the finishing work on the Ohana Trail Completion, a lot was accomplished with a small crew! There’s a large amount of cut trail that needs to be finished now, the pace has picked up beyond what we could finish this weekend. Lots to do, hope to see you next Sunday.

The only scheduled trail day for the immediate future is Sunday, August 16th, from 1-5pm.

Thanks,

Leland

Where to go:
just walk or ride up the white fence trail and follow it to big tree, then follow the small fire road until it meets up with the existing new trail, you should be heading toward the peaks of Olomana, with the new development on your right side. Keep heading up the trail until you run into a work crew or all the way to the new section that will be marked with a yellow sign. If you are unfamiliar with the white fence trail, it is right at the junction of Old Kalanianaole Hwy, and the Current Kalanianaole Hwy on the Waimanalo side.

Thank you to all who came up on Sunday to help with the finishing work on the Ohana Trail Completion. We met our goals for the day quite early since we had so many helpful trail workers. Friday from 3-6pm is the next work day, then Sunday from 12-6pm again. Hope to see you there!

Thanks,

Trail Care Day Sunday!

Sunday, August 2nd, from 12pm to 6pm is our next Trail Care day for the Ohana Trail completion project.

Good news, for Sunday’s trail day, the developer of the Olomana Heights subdivision is allowing us to park there, you can enter on the driveway on Old Kalanianaole Road, go up the main road, then park along the curb on the upper road, walk across the dirt lots toward Waimanalo and you can cut right into the blue ribbon trail.

Volunteers are needed for finishing work on the freshly built trail sections, but can also just do some cleaning and raking on the already built section to bring it back up to standards.

What to bring:
Water, safety glasses, closed toe shoes, (preferably) long pants, work gloves, any tools you like to use (especially loppers and small cutting tools like handsaws etc), a signed waiver.

Where to go: just walk up the white fence trail and follow it to big tree, then follow the small fire road until it meets up with the existing new trail, you should be heading toward the peaks of Olomana, with the new development on your right side. Keep heading up the trail until you run into a work crew or all the way to the new section that will be marked with a yellow sign. If you are unfamiliar with the white fence trail, it is right at the junction of Old Kalanianaole Hwy, and the Current Kalanianaole Hwy on the Waimanalo side. You can call me (Leland) at 808-224-6745 if you need more instructions or help.

Date: Sunday, August 2nd

Time: 12pm – 6pm

From Dirt Riders Of Pupukea Paumalu

Howzit Dirt Riders,

Conditions have been great and hopefully you’ve all gotten to enjoy some great riding.

Just wanted to give everyone the heads up that they will be repaving Sunset Hills sometime this week. We don’t know the exact schedule, but be prepared for limited parking, or even no parking at all.

As always, it’s best if you can park away from the neighborhood and pedal in. As things may be hectic during the repaving process, please be extra conscious of the Sunset Hill residents and make sure that you don’t accidentally block someone’s driveway.

See you on the trails!
