Stair way to Heaven Hike (Haiku Stairs)

4000 steps up the Koolaus Mountain range on the East Side of Oahu about the Haiku Valley. This hike was closed to the public in 1987 despise being renovated in 2003. To access the trail you have to hop two fences, two thick bamboo forests and arrive before 3 am to avoid the security guard that sits at the entrance to the stairs. BUT IT WAS EPIC!!!! Not a hike for the non-athletic, the climb takes about 2 hours due to the careful foot placement.

    I would love to shoot that satellite on a clear night with a star trail stack!

    • The rain/fog/mist was so thick I almost ruined my camera taking shots up there. If you want that shot it got to be done during the dry summer months.

      You can’t tell from this picture but you can climb on top of them and it’s double sided
