MAUI GROUP HIKES AND ACTIVITIES
Please be prepared for outings. Bring lunch, water, rain gear, sunscreen and appropriate footwear. Hiking boots are recommended for longer hikes. A donation of $5 ($3 for Sierra Club members) is requested of hikers over age 14. We always welcome more hike leaders. Contact Miranda Camp at email@example.com.

East Maui Irrigation Company (EMI) allows us to hike across their beautiful land so long as each hiker has a waiver. An EMI WAIVER IS ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED FOR EMI HIKES (LISTED BELOW). One waiver covers all EMI hikes for this quarter. Call in your waiver request to Kawika or Mark at 579-9516 well in advance to make an appointment for when you can sign it. Then go to EMI’s Pa’ia office at 497 Baldwin Avenue to sign the waiver. Waivers CANNOT be mailed, faxed or emailed. Sierra club does not make the rules. EMI does. Please be considerate of EMI staff time and pick up waiver 5 days in advance whenever possible. THE WAIVER MUST BE BROUGHT ON THE HIKE AND SHOWN TO THE HIKE LEADER. Mahalo
