Escape To A Jurassic World And Get Muddy On The Little-Known Makuala O’oma Trail In Hawaii

There are parts of Hawaii that feel worlds away from the island chain’s popular beaches — jungles, rainforests, mountains and valleys, that transport you to another time and place — perhaps when dinosaurs roamed free? While you will find several landscapes used in the filming of our favorite dinosaur movie franchise, this little-known trail will take you on an epic adventure like no other. Ready to escape to a prehistoric world? Let’s lace up our hiking boots and prepare to get a little (or a lot) muddy! 

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:
