2 hikers fell from unmarked trail

From Times Wire Reports

Two women who fell about 300 feet to their deaths while hiking to the base of a Kauai waterfall were using an unmarked trail featured in some Hawaii guidebooks, officials said.

Kauai police identified the women as cousins Elizabeth Ann Brem, 35, of Encinitas, and Paula Gonzalez Ramirez, 29, from Colombia.

There is no official trail from the lookout over Opaekaa Falls to either the top or the bottom of the scenic waterfall.
