If the hike description states an EMI waiver is required:
East Maui Irrigation Company (EMI) allows access to their trails as long as each hiker has a waiver. An EMI waiver is absolutely required for EMI hikes. Call in your waiver request at 579-9516 well in advance to make an appointment to sign it. Then go to EMI’s office at 8401 Pulehu Road to sign the waiver or ask to e-sign it. The office is in the Mahi Pono complex, which is actually a right turn from Pulehu Road onto South Firebreak Road. It is open Monday – Friday 7am-3pm. Waivers cannot be mailed, faxed, or emailed. Please be considerate of EMI staff time and pick up the waiver 5 days in advance whenever possible. The waiver must be brought on the hike and shown to the hike leader.

Hike description key: (C) conservation focus, such as discussing how to conserve this land for future generations to enjoy; (E) educational, such as visiting and learning about archeological sites and naming the plants and flowers; (S) service outing (no donation required), (D) round trip hike distance.

We always welcome more hike leaders! Send email to if you are interested.
