Written in the same accessible style and format as the highly successful The Hikers Guide to Oahu, this volume is a detailed and fully illustrated guide to the best day hikes on the Big Island, Kauai, Maui, and Oahu. Each island is represented by an equal number of hikes, 44 in all. Together they offer both resident and visitor alike the chance to explore some of Hawaii's most spectacular scenery.
For each trip, the author provides detailed directions to the trailhead, a feature-by-feature description of the route, a topographic map keyed to the route description, and comments on common plants and animals, geological formations, historical sites, and other points of interest. Each hike is categorized by difficulty. Hiking tips, safety considerations, and a list of trail and camping information sources are included.View the latest updates
