Haiku Stairs is a 2 mile out and back trail located near Heeia, Hawaii. The trail is only recommended for very experienced outdoorsmen and primarily used for hiking.
It's the most controversial hike on the island! The Haiku Stairs is one of the most sought after hikes on the island, but due to worried and frustrated landowners any hiker wanting to go up the stairway will need to bypass private property and a security guard.
The trailhead is guarded, and inaccessible during daylight hours! The only way to access the trail via the trailhead without being turned away by the neighborhood guard (as opposed to approaching it from another trail on the ridge) is to arrive no later than 3am!
