Hawaii’s famous Haiku Stairs will likely be removed

Hawaii’s famous Haiku Stairs, sometimes called the Stairway to Heaven, are likely to be removed next year following a Honolulu City Council meeting to discuss ongoing issues with the site.
The stairs, whose 3,922 steps wind through a 2,800 foot mountain trail in Kaneohe, on the eastern side of Oahu, were originally built by the US Navy in the 1940s.
The stairs reach a dramatic apex through the clouds and many locals consider the view to be the best in all of Hawaii.

In 1987, the stairs were permanently made off-limits to the public. But that didn’t stop hikers, YouTubers, thrill seekers and other tourists from sneaking into the site. There have been numerous injuries there over the years, most recently a 24-year-old who hurt his knee and had to be airlifted out in April.
