Here Are The 10 Most Popular Hikes In Hawaii… And Where To Go Instead

In addition to our world-famous beaches, the Hawaiian Islands are home to countless incredible trails and hikes perfect for those of all skill levels. And while we love Oahu’s Diamond Head, Maui’s Pipiwai Trail, and Hawaii Island’s Kilauea Iki as much as the next person, these popular hikes are often far too crowded – especially on weekends and during the busy tourist seasons – to enjoy the solitude you’re hoping to find by hitting the trails. If you’re looking for a little more seclusion, or perhaps just an alternative to your favorite hike, here are 10 of the most popular hikes in Hawaii – and which trails to visit instead.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
