Hawaii’s hiking trails are gateways into the unique ecosystems of the islands; Hikers can find breathtaking views at every corner. However, local ecosystems and communities are straining with the recent influx of people flocking to these trails. Trails are deteriorating, misinformation is rampant, and local communities struggle with trespassing and disruption. Alaka’i proposes the solutions to these tremendous problems. Alaka’i provides an informative, accurate, and reliable catalog of information to assist hikers in finding their next adventure. At the same time, hikers can see trail traffic forecasts through our real-time and predictive traffic data. We even encourage unofficial “reservations” which allow us to warn other hikers of a potentially busy day. With our app, hikers can make better choices for when and where to have their next outing. We hope to encourage sustainable trail use and exploration of new trails with new adventures! Finally, our donation system makes it simple to support your favorite trails, preserving their beauty for generations to come.
