TRAIL WORK ANNOUNCEMENT

Aloha again Runners!

Pending final approval from DLNR, HURT runners are planning to refurbish the rutted section of Manoa Cliffs Trail between Kalawahine and the trex sign.  We hope to get this done before the Trek and of course, HURT VI.

We have presented a few options to DLNR for consideration:

     1.  Cut down the remaining bank and regrade existing trail section.

     2.  Cut a new trail section to bipass the rutted area and divert drainage to minize future erosion.

Work Date:  20 August 2005

Time:  TBA

Meet:  Hawaii NC lower parking area.  We may also do a carpool up to concrete road.

Bring:  Lunch, water, bugspray, hat, etc.  DLNR will provide tools and gloves.

We also plan to work on the muddy sections of Nahuina later this year, when new equipment arrives.  Plans include bringing in gravel, redirecting drainage, and building boardwalks.

The upcoming work will be a good chance to "give back" to the trail system that we enjoy and use so frequently.  Please let me know if you are able to help on 20 August. 

Mahalo,

Mike G.
