State reopens Judd Trail a week after woman was injured by falling tree

  • COURTESY DLNR

    The Judd Trail in Nuuanu was closed last week after a large banyan tree fell across the path and Nuuanu Stream on May 2, pinning the 42-year-old woman while she hiked with a group of eight.

The state reopened Judd Trail in Nuuanu on Monday about a week after a woman hiking on the trail was injured by a falling tree.

The large banyan tree fell across the path and Nuuanu Stream on May 2, pinning the 42-year-old woman while she hiked with a group of eight. Firefighters freed the woman, and paramedics took her to the hospital in serious condition.

A Department of Land and Natural Resources crew cut up and removed the tree, a DLNR spokeswoman said.

The state is investigating the incident.

  • There are a dozen ways to hike around the fallen banyan tree. It is completely unacceptable that an unelected individual had the power to close the trail.

    • If it was an elected official, how would that be different? I’d see your point if some private party took it upon himself, but it was an elected official who appointed the person into state government in a position of specific authority with the power to make these decisions.

      How many of the dozen ways did you personally use? All of them? Your comment certainly seems to acknowledge that you violated the kapu.
