The Forest Trail In Hawaii That Will Transport You Far Away From The Islands

From waterfall hikes to boardwalk trails and everything in between, Hawaii is home to some of America’s best hiking trails and we love nothing more than exploring our beautiful state on foot. With miles and miles of trails that ascend mountains, traverse ridgelines, and lead to breathtaking natural beauty, Hawaii is truly a hiker’s paradise, especially when it comes to forest trails. But not all trails are created equal, and this gem, though lesser-known and off-the-beaten-path, is one of our current favorites.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
