Agency proposes work to protect Kauai trail from erosion

LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) - The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service wants to reinforce a trail at Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge on Kauai to protect it from erosion.

The Garden Island newspaper in Lihue reports the work would bolster about half of a 200-foot trail between the refuge visitor center and lighthouse.

Erosion and settlement have affected parts of the trail.

Erosion work around the trail hasn't been conducted in about 10 years.

The trail meanders from the visitor center to the lighthouse along steep bluffs overlooking the ocean. A cement wall lines the trail, which shows cracks and wear.

Project consultant Greg Allington says the work is a maintenance issue.
