LANIKAI, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The community is being asked to pitch ideas for the future of Ka'iwa Ridge Trail, commonly known as Lanikai Pillboxes.
The Department of Land and Natural Resources is putting a call out to hikers and community members to share what they want to see in the area. Input will be used to compose the Ka'iwa Ridge Trail Management Plan, which helps outline how the area will be maintained in the near future.
The 1.25-mile hike has gained popularity over the years. The hike provides scenic views of Lanikai and features two historic artillery observation stations -- referred to as Pillboxes -- that were used during WWII.
DLNR officials want hikers to share feedback on the trail and how it can be used and maintained in the long-term.
There will also be a community meeting on Tuesday, Jan 23 at the Kaohao Elementary School Cafeteria. The meeting will run from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
