Hawaii is hikers’ nirvana, with trails on every island for every level of hiking experience, over multiple varieties of terra firma (and not-so-firma), showcasing every measure of our Islands’ world-renowned diversity of landscapes, climate zones and unsurpassed natural wonder.
In HAWAII Magazine’s May/June issue, we share the details on our favorite statewide treks in the feature “15 Great Hawaii Hiking Trails.” The trails are grouped by hiking proficiency required and include info on time you’ll need to complete each hike, terrain, trailheads and a taste of what you’ll see. And each is guaranteed to reward extraordinary outdoor adventure and scenery. All you have to do is be here, and bring lots of water along.
