A powerful storm passed over the island of Oahu on 2/14/2015 which caused significant damage to the stairway, rendering them unusable. After the storm damage, five hikers got stuck on the east side of the mountain's ridge and were trapped overnight and had to be rescued.

Hello all who are coming to Oahu and are trying to hike the haiku stairs (or the stairway to heaven as it's known around here). Everyone who is asking for guides, there are none because the stairs have been closed down due damage and it is now illegal to hike them.

Hello!

My wife and I are looking to do the hike on the morning of Sept. 28th. We will be in Hawaii for our honeymoon and this is the only day we have available. Looking to go with a bigger group of people and preferably someone that has done the hike before.

Willing to give $20 to anyone that will just show us to the bottom of the stairs if not interested in hiking that morning!

Hey everybody,

I will be in town and attempting this hike again (my second time) on Sept 25. Will approach from behind (Moanalau Trail) If you haven't done it, it's amazing. Shoot me an email if you want to join. We will be starting very early in the morning so we get to see all the sights during sunrise. Took me 6.5 hours last time.

Hi All,

My fiance and I recently completed this hike on Sept 4th - we started at 6:30 in the morning, there was literally no one at the top. We did encounter the guard but she did not acknowledge our existence so we kept going as if she was never there. We were very lucky. It was such an incredible experience for the both of us, it did rain at the very top when we arrive, on and off fog and rain.

I know a lot of you are planning on taking on this hike, one advise though is to please do not leave your trash. We got to the the very top and there were so many beer bottles/water bottles, garbage's everywhere! PLEASE don't leave any garbage's, let's make this hike even more extra ordinary, if you must leave some trail, write your name on the wall, I know this does not sound ideal but that's better than leaving a trash.

I'm happy to answer any questions you might have, just be very careful and please do not leave any trash.

Mahalo!

I'm interested in going on this trail but have no idea where it starts and what would be a good time to go on it. Looking for someone with experience with the trail to at least answer these questions.

Going to try and hike this Monday Sept 12 (maybe Sunday 11th if weather for Monday is looking bad). Anyone that has done this before interested in (at least) showing us (myself and 2 others) to the start of the stairs? Lunch on us if interested/able to. Done a lot of reading from multiple sources and we should be ok, but first hand experience is always welcomed. Shoot me an email - quickresponse000@gmail.com
