Large fence blocks entrance to Mariner's Ridge trail

HAWAII KAI, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow)- Another fence has gone up at an Oahu hiking hotspot. This one is blocking the popular Mariner's Ridge trail in Hawaii Kai.

The fence went up Thursday and painted Friday, but just because the trail is now blocked doesn't mean it won't be used.

Hikers who drove to the Mariner's Ridge hike saw an addition to the landscape. It's a seven foot fence at the start of the property line.

"It's a little sad. I like to hike there but I know a lot of people have gotten hurt," said Christina Gobert, hiker from Makiki.

Hurt and killed. A man died on the trail in June. There have also been numerous complaints of erosion. People who live in the neighborhood say people leave trash and dog poop, picnic in yards and smoke pot and drink in front of the homes.
