The Underrated Hike In Hawaii That Will Lead You To Unforgettable Views
From easy, paved hikes like Maui’s Kapalua Coastal Trail to strenuous multi-day backpacking excursions like Kauai’s Kalalau Trail, the Hawaiian Islands are home to countless incredible hiking trails, each one more breathtaking than the last. While many of these popular hikes can get crowded, especially on the island of Oahu, there are other, lesser-known trails that will not only take you a million miles away from it all but also lead to unforgettable panoramic views. One such hike is Oahu’s Pu’u Ma’eli’eli Trail, more commonly referred to among locals as “digging hill.”
A warning: this trail traverses through private property, and while there have been no reports of the trail being shut down, it doesn’t take much for the landowners to do so. Please be respectful, quiet, and heed all warning signs.
