11 Of The Greatest Mountain Hiking Trails In Hawaii For Beginners

While the crystalline turquoise waters and fine white sand beaches of the Hawaiian Islands invite you in, it is the majestic mountains that keep you coming back for more – at least for me, an avid hiker, that is. From the lush, green mountains of Kauai to the stark volcanic landscapes of Hawaii Island, there is little more awe-inspiring than Hawaii’s mountain ranges. While you can experience these mountains from afar, there’s little better than embarking on a hike in the mountains. Not all trails are created equal, and though many of Hawaii’s hiking trails are reserved for those with plenty of experience, these 11 mountain hikes are ideal for beginners.
