With more than 10 years of experience as a professional writer, Megan holds a degree in Mass Media from her home state of Minnesota. After college, she chose to trade in her winter boots for slippahs and moved to the beautiful island of Oahu, where she has been living for more than five years. She lives on the west side but is constantly taking mini-road trips across the island and visits the neighboring islands whenever she can getaway. She loves hiking, snorkeling, locally-grown coffee, and finding the best acai bowl on Oahu.
While it would be impossible to explore all this captivating state park has to offer, there is one hike you absolutely must experience, whether you have one morning or one month set aside to check out Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. This is the Kilauea Iki Trail, an absolutely jaw-dropping journey through a diverse array of scenery. The popular 4-mile loop trail was voted as the Big Island’s best scenic hiking trail by Hawaii Magazine.
