A number of hikers turned out along the Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail for American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day® events on the weekend of June 2 & 3, 2012. From Kawaihae to Hawaii Volcanoes, seven groups reaped FREE benefits from their hikes. They got to breathe fresh air, get hearts pumping, maintain health and escape from the daily stress.

Kaleo Paik, Ala Kahakai Trail Association board member, worked with Sheila Franklin of American Hiking Society and was able to request and secure a proclamation from the governor of Hawaii, Neil Abercrombie. The proclamation declared June 2, 2012 as “Hawai`i Trails Day”. Within the document, the governor urged the people of the Aloha State to “join us in taking advantage of our State’s trails year-round and to recognize our trails as an important resource that helps enhance the quality of life for all participants.” To view Hawaii Trails Day proclamation, click here Hawaii Trails Day Proclamation 2012.tif

In your backyard in Hawaii is the 175 mile Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail, a portion of the 200,oo miles of trail access to the natural world in America. Discover, learn about and celebrate trails not just on Hawai’i Trails Day but everyday.  Be safe  and remember to reap the free benefits the trail offers.
