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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
