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.
With near-perfect summer weather year-round, there’s nowhere better to lace up your hiking boots and hit the trails than the breathtaking Hawaiian Islands. Sometimes, though, you may want to try something a little bit different. It’s not that you’re tired of the constant waterfall hikes and coastal trails, but we love to mix it up and experience other beautiful aspects of the state. From a hike through a ravishing redwood forest, to a trail leading through a volcanic crater, we think these 10 trails are the best hikes on Hawaii — and they just might make you forget that you’re on a tropical island.
