This 4,000-Step ‘Stairway to Heaven’ Hike is Epic, But it’s Illegal

The hike is long, the path is steep, and it's illegal.

The base closed in 1987. Since then, the area was restricted from the public and they prohibited hikers. Guards sit at the base entrance for most of the day.

The locals have been asking the government to open the stairs to the public, but the government thinks it would be “cost prohibitive to keep the stairs in a safe condition.”

For those who still want to experience the exhilarating hike, the Honolulu Board of Water Supply (BWS) will require you to sign a waiver and present a $1 million liability insurance policy. The BWS has jurisdiction over the hike.

Still, some daring hikers ignore the “No Trespassing” signs and sneak in to see these magnificent views:
