Hawaii is a hiker's heaven, so it's no surprise there is a passionate and connected community across all the islands to take in the diverse geography.
That also means there are a host of issues that come into play, whether it's about safety, liability, carrying capacities, public lands, or caring for the trails. What are the risks and responsibilities involved? How do tourists fit into the picture? Civil Cafe will cover all that and more.
Join the conversation as we talk with:
- Denby Fawcett, author, "Secrets of Diamond Head: A History and Trail Guide;" and renowned journalist
- State Sen. Laura Thielen, former chairwoman of the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources
- Curt Cottrell, DLNR Parks Division assistant administrator
- John Hall of the Hawaiian Trail and Mountain Club
