Island Trails by Kaleo Lancaster

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.
