DESCRIPTION:  THE SINGLE MOST CONTROVERSIAL TRAIL ON THE ISLAND OF OAHU.

4000+ STEPS AND A NEAR VERTICAL METAL STAIRCASE THAT ASCENDS ABOVE THE CLOUDS TO THE TOP OF THE KOOLAU MOUNTAIN RANGE MAKES THIS "STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN" ONE OF THE MOST UNIQUE AND SCENIC TRAILS ON THE ISLAND.

SINCE 1997, DUE TO ACCESS AND STATE LIABILITY ISSUES, HAIKU STAIRS HAS BEEN A CLOSED TRAIL.
