Hikers rescued from Manoa Valley

By Star-Advertiser Staff


Two women hikers were forced to spend the night in Manoa Valley after getting lost near Manoa Falls.

The women started their hike Monday and got lost after leaving Manoa Falls and decided to wait for daylight to try to return to the trail head. However, at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, the pair decided to call for help, according to Fire Capt. Terry Seelig.

The fire department's helicopter located the pair and flew them to Manoa District Park.

The women did not need medical attention.

They should've tried hiking around Kapiolani Park first. If they pass, then can go try Manoa Valley.

I can see this happening. There are several trails, not well defined in some areas, off to the Ewa side of the main trail where there's quite a bit of jungly, up-and-down terrain and someone could have a hard time figuring which way to go. Especially if the sun's behind the ridge and everything's getting dim quickly. Everyone else is back down and you could be twenty yards from the main trail and not realize it.

I mean I know Manoa Falls has side trails. . . .I've wanted to check them out myself, but you really have to be some kind of stupid to get lost out there. I hope it rained on them.
