Honolulu (KHON2) — Two local organizations organized a large community-led effort to assist in cleaning the Pearl Harbor Historic Trail on Saturday, April 24th.
Kakaako’s 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 the state-wide service day of Rotary’s Ridge-to-Reef cleanup.
The Historic Trail spans Waipahu Depot Street from Aiea State Park 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 could be a great recreational resource, similar to 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. The individuals were divided into 35 groups of 10 each to comply with the COVID-19 protocol.
Past community volunteer activities have removed tons of debris, towed scrapped and abandoned vehicles, and provided assistance to individuals who have lost their homes.
