In a position paper posted on its website, the group says it has decided the proposed rail line is "too destructive."
"In our 100 year history The Outdoor Circle (TOC) has seen no other venture that holds the potential to degrade the landscape of Oahu as the proposed Honolulu Rail Transit project," the group says.
As of this summer, the advocacy organization had not taken a definitive stance against the project, but its board recently voted unanimously to oppose it.
