Hikers Flip Out As Obama Climbs Up Grueling Hawaii Trail

Some people vacation in Hawaii to sip Mai Tais on the beach and indulge in well-deserved R& R. But not President Barack Obama.

When he visits the Aloha State, he puts in work.

On Tuesday, after his early morning gym conference, Obama, his family and a few friends took on the Koko Head Crater Stairs — a popular Hawaii hike that is so grueling, people often refer to it as the “Stairmaster from Hell” or the “Koko Head Stairs of Doom.”

Unsuspecting hikers had to move to the side of the trail’s narrow path as a sweaty Obama and his security entourage barreled up the trail’s 1, 048 wooden steps, which climb a steep 1,208 feet up the crater’s ridge.

But the hikers didn’t seem to mind the delay.

One walker even took advantage of the situation and offered POTUS some advice for the conclusion of its term.

“Thanks for your service, Mr. President, ” the man says in a video posted to the My Kailua Facebook page.

Legalize it on your way out! ” he adds as Obama walks away.

Most hikers, however, maintained their legislative suggestions to themselves and simply tried to squeeze in their presidential selfies as casually as possible.

After the hike, the Obamas spent the rest of the day at their luxury Kailua rental, presumably for some well-deserved relaxation.

Below, consider Obama and his gang climb up the staircase of doom 😛 TAGEND
