Participate in a group hike to Manoa Falls led by Aaron Lowe, Oahu Trails & Access Specialist, followed by a discussion of the impact of the tourism industry on Hawaii's natural resources. Learn about the delicate balance between people and nature, and hear the results of the most recent public survey about Manoa Falls Trail.
This trail is one of Oahu’s most popular hiking locations and sees over 100,000 hikers each year. Thanks to grants through Hawaii Tourism Authority and partnerships with commercial ecotourism operators, improvements to the trail (including a new front entry way, gate, and rock pillars, an interpretive kiosk, interpretive signs, a viewing area at the falls and pool, and trail widening and armoring) will help to ensure that the trail remains beautiful and intact.

The Hawaii Ecotourism Association Board of Directors has developed several “get to know the HEA membership” type events. If you would like to have your ecotourism business featured at one of these events, you could host HEA members and guests at an event at your facility. This form of networking will work to everyone’s advantage. Contact Paul Dyson at email@example.com. Plans are in the works to have similar events on Kauai, Maui and Hawaii island.
