The Honolulu Fire Department reminds hikers to:
- Set out early. Do not wait until after dark or even near dusk to begin your hike. If you get hurt or lost, your chances of being rescued diminish greatly after the sun goes down.
- Know the conditions. If it’s raining, think about planning your hike for another time, especially if you have young children and/or infants with you.
- Know your physical abilities and limitations; select trails that can be enjoyed safely.
- Most accidents happen when hikers leave the established trail and disregard warning signs. Staying on the trail greatly reduces your chances of getting injured or lost.
