Sunset Beach Bike Path, or Ke Ala Pupukea Path

The Ke Ala Pupukea Bike Path, or Sunset Beach Bike Path as it’s more commonly known, is a 3-mile stretch of pavement that runs parallel to Kamehameha Highway up on Oʻahu’s North Shore.

The nearly 30-year-old path is a popular thoroughfare for everyone from bike riders to those just taking a stroll. It’s also become more dangerous for users in recent years because of spotty maintenance.

The Conversation spoke with Rex-ann Dubiel, vice president of the North Shore Outdoor Circle, to find out what the community is doing about it.

And in addition to the push to reconstruct the bike path, Honolulu Councilmember Heidi Tsuneyoshi spearheaded a clean-up last week with 25 volunteers to remove overgrowth from the path. She spoke with The Conversation about what more the council is doing to address the issue.
