HFD responds to injured hiker in Nuuanu

Honolulu firefighters are responding to an injured hiker in Nuuanu.

Five fire company units with 15 personnel arrived at 3:37 p.m. to the Mo‘ole Valley Falls Trail, accessible off the Pali Highway, in search of an undisclosed hiker with a lower leg injury near the second falls.

The Fire Department also has deployed its helicopter at the old Nuuanu reservoir off old Pali Road.

“We have HFD personnel currently hiking the trail to locate the injured hiker,” said Kevin Mokulehua, the department’s acting public information officer. “The main goal is to get to the hiker, assess for injuries and transport the hiker to EMS as soon as we can.”

  • I never heard of that trail before. Only Nuuanu trail I had heard of in the 1970s was the Judd Trail off the Nuuanu Pali Dr. Way more hiking going on nowadays in the islands. I did the Kalalau Trail in the 1970s. Only other people on trail we saw was the hippie colony nudists that lived in one of the valleys there. Go to Kalalau now and you no can even get parking in the parking lot and half the hikers will be Europeans.

  • Please forgive me if I seem a little overly critical today. (I’ve been thinking a lot about writing and have fired up Scrivener to re-write Chapter Four.) But, dear SA, “an undisclosed hiker” really isn’t quite the same thing as an “unnamed hiker” or a hiker whose name was “not released.” Ok, I’m done now. Have an excellent Tuesday. 🙂
