In an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep our communities safe, all outings are suspended through at least the end of 2020.
Check back towards the end of 2020 for potential new developments
For all of our outings, we ask for the following:
1. Register for all hikes with the leader listed in the description. Please provide both an email address and a cell phone number where you can be reached at the start of the outing.
2. Be prepared for outings: Bring lunch, at least 1-2 liters of water, rain gear, sunscreen and appropriate footwear. Hiking boots are recommended for longer hikes.
3. A donation of $5 ($3 for Sierra Club members) is requested for all hikers over age 14 unless otherwise stated in a hike description.
Hike Descriptions Key
(C) means conservation, such as discussing how to conserve this land for future generations to enjoy.

EMI WAIVER REQUIRED FOR CERTAIN HIKES
To go on certain hikes, you need a waiver from East Maui Irrigation Company (EMI). If the hike description notes that you need a waiver then you absolutely must get one prior to the hike. (If there is no notation that the hike requires an EMI waiver, then you don’t need to worry about this.) Call in your waiver request to EMI at 579-9516 well in advance to make an appointment for when you can sign it. Then go to EMI’s office at 8401 Pulehu Road in Kahului to sign the waiver. You will need to call to make sure someone will be there. Waivers CANNOT be mailed, faxed or emailed. Sierra Club Maui 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
Hike Leader Training, Now With CPR Certification
This year Sierra Club Maui Group is offering free hike leader training on Saturday, May 9, followed on Monday, May 18 for free CPR training.
Our hike leader training goes over the considerations in planning, organizing, publicizing and carrying out an outing on Maui. What is different about hiking on Maui compared to other places? How do you prepare for and deal with accidents? Do you need to ask permission to cross certain properties? What can you add to an outing to make it more interesting and enjoyable for a widely varying group of participants?
Join us as a hike leader and share your enthusiasm while encouraging more people to know and love the best of the islands.
