Pair of hikers rescued from Kuliouou Ridge Trail

By Star-Advertiser staff


Rescuers airlifted a man and woman in their 60s from the Kuliouou Ridge Trail area Sunday morning after the couple got lost, a Honolulu Fire Department spokesman said. 

The two got about a mile off trail and were unable to find their way back, fire inspector David Jenkins said. 

The uninjured couple called for help around 11:20 a.m. They were airlifted using the department's rescue helicopter and dropped off at the trail head, Jenkins said. No medical attention was needed.

way more people hiking nowadays. When I was a kid growing up in the 1970s, you were lucky to see 1 other person that that Kuliouou trail. Now you see 40 people.
