Hawaii To Shut Down All Hiking Trails, Cites Entire State As Being on Private Land

HONOLULU, HAWAII — The Governor has announced that beginning April 1, 2015, all of Hawaii’s hiking trails will be closed to the general public until further notice. The closure includes, but is not limited to, all trails in Hawaii’s National Park System, all state-maintained trails, including those maintained by Hawaii’s Department of Land and Natural Resources. The one exception to the closure is the Lanikai Ridge Trail, because Kailua residents always get what they want.
