Na Ala Hele was established in 1988 through Chapter 198D Hawaii Revised Statues, in response to public concern about the increasing loss of public access to trails and the threat to historic trails from development pressure.  Na Ala Hele is administered by the Hawai'i Department of Land and Natural Resources , under the Division of Forestry and Wildlife.  Na Ala Hele directives include:  regulate trails and accesses; conduct trail and access inventory, classification, and advisory council meetings; investigate potential and needed trails and accesses; examine legal issues associated with trails and access; act as point of contact for trail and access information and issues; construct, restore and maintain trails and accesses through utilization of staff and partnerships with community volunteers.  Volunteers are needed year round to help maintain trails.  For more information call (808)873-3509 or visit www.hawaiitrails.org.
