This proposal for the development of a system of administering hiking trails in the state of Hawaii when such trails would involve various public and private jurisdictions emphasizes three elements: (a) proposing means of administration involving multiple jurisdictions; (b) demonstrating by means of a proposed project on the west coast of the Big Island how such a trail administration would work and the benefits anticipated from it; and (c) showing how such a cooperative trails management system involving federal, state, county, and private agencies and individuals can lead to many benefits for all involved and for improved government-citizen management of Hawaii's basic natural resources. The basic concept underlying the proposal is that facilities which are functionally related should be administratively related as well. The concept involves the use of public rights-of-way across private land to connect existing and planned facilities such as parks into a coordinated administrative unit. The concept provides access and increased use without the burden of large fee purchases. The proposal itself consists of (a) an introduction that discusses the setting for the proposed demonstration project and the state and county policy framework; (b) an outline of the demonstration project; (c) a discussion of the administration of the trails system; (d) a survey of the demonstration project area including a general shoreline survey, coastal geology, coastal ponds, botanical resources, observed wildlife, places of historical, archaeological, and legendary interests; and (e) bibliographies.
