The Hawaiian Islands are a paradise for outdoor lovers, and while you’ll find countless incredible trails where you’ll want to lace up your hiking boots and explore, the most famous trail is likely Oahu’s Diamond Head Crater, which leads to the summit of a well-known Hawaii landmark and provides excellent views of Honolulu.

What are the most beautiful hikes in Hawaii?

The Aloha State is home to several stunning hiking trails, but one of my all-time favorites and what I consider the most beautiful trail in Hawaii is the Pipiwai Trail. Located in southeast Maui, off Hana Highway and near the Pools of Oheo, is the unforgettable Pipiwai Trail, a four-mile round trip trek that will take you on quite the enchanting journey through a lush Hawaiian tropical rainforest to a towering banyan tree, through a vast bamboo forest, and to several impressive, cascading waterfalls.
