Paws on the Path is Hawaiian Humane Society’s hiking club. We meet the last Saturday of every month so that community members and their pets can enjoy adventures on Oahu’s beautiful hiking trails. There’s no need to register, just arrive at the trail-head or designated parking lot at 8:30 a.m. on the morning of the hike.
For each hike, make sure to bring plenty of water for yourself and your dog and wear appropriate footwear (no slippers). We require all dogs stay on-leash during hikes to create a safe and fun experience for all of our hikers. In the event of severe weather conditions, remember to check the website or call 226-3872 for updates.
