If you’re into hiking I’m sure you already know about Island Trails. It’s Kaleo Lancaster’s hiking journal and it’s the best hiking blog on the island. I’ve been meaning to write a post about the site for some time now and once I saw this 2010 video summary, I had to share it.
I don’t know Kaleo personally but I met him once on the Olomana Trail. We crossed paths and talked story for a bit. I didn’t recognize him until he warned us about some bees at the top of the third peak. He told us how he and a buddy got swarmed once and took a hard fall. (It was this crazy story.) It was cool to meet him as, I have to admit, I’m a fan.
Most of the hikes I’ve done have been selected using Island Trails as a resource. I’ll send the videos to my friends to get them stoked and then print out the stories to use as a guide during the hike. But there are a lot of trails he’s covered that I won’t touch. Watch the video above and you’ll see why.
