VISION The Kokonut Koalition works to preserve, protect, and enhance the community's access to iconic Hawaii trails and landscapes for current and future generations. We work to educate the public and public agencies on past and current uses of such sites to allow continued respectful use of these public outdoor recreation opportunities.

MISSION Our mission is to restore the Koko Crater Stairs to ensure continued access for local residents and for future generations. The trail provides a unique window into our regional culture and history and it provides access to the summit of Koko Crater - with unparalleled and spectacular 360-degree views in East Oahu, ranging from Diamond Head to the Ko'olau mountains to the Ka'iwi coast. Neighbor islands of Molokai and Maui are easily visible, and on clear days you can see the peaks of Lanai and even the Big Island.
