The Friends of Haʻikū Stairs (FHS) is a group of volunteers who believe in protecting historic Haiku Stairs and its environment for current and future generations.
FHS is governed by a board of directors representing hiking organizations, conservation organizations, and community groups interested in the history, ecology, cultural integrity, and recreational opportunities in Haʻikū Valley. FHS carries out its mission in cooperation with governmental agencies having responsibilities relating to Haʻikū Stairs. This mission is funded by public contributions, grants, educational programs and materials, and sale of products associated with the Stairs.
The stairs are closed and illegal to access, no matter how you access them. We do not provide information that will aid people in breaking the law. All of the photos on our page were taken on official work days. People who are chosen for the workdays are those with special skills such as botany or engineering. People who dedicate time to things like taking meeting minutes, pro-bono legal work, and bookkeeping are the first ones to fill the non-skilled workday jobs such as trash clean up and invasive species eradication. If you would like to join us for a workday, please let us know what non-workday work you can contribute. You’ll be glad you did!
