Honolulu (KHON2) — Two local organizations organized a large community-led effort to assist in cleaning the Pearl Harbor Historic Trail on Saturday, April 24th.

The Kakaako Eco Rotary Club and the Hawaii Bicycle League hosted the event. The event took place on Saturday from 8:30 am to 10 am as part of a state-wide service day for cleaning Rotary ridges to coral reefs.

The Historic Trail stretches from Aiea State Park to Waipahu Depot Street and is the longest multi-purpose pass on Oahu, spanning more than five miles. City councilman Brandon Elephante says the trail has amazing potential.

“This trail can be a great recreational resource, as well as the Atlanta Beltline and the Kapaa Bike Path on Kauai.”

The goal of Saturday’s cleanup was to kickstart government and community groups to improve the trail and care for it in the long run and consistently.

About 350 people were scheduled to participate. Individuals were divided into 35 groups of 10 each to comply with the COVID-19 protocol.

Past community volunteer activities have helped individuals who have lost their homes by removing large amounts of debris, towing scrapped and scrapped cars.
