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 approximately 20 volcanoes ranging in age from 400,000 years to 5.1 million years, the Hawaiian Islands are full of fascinating history of volcanoes, and incredible landscapes formed from flowing lava. From underground lava tubes in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to stunning landscapes carved into the coastline – like Oahu’s Lanai Lookout – nowhere will you find cooler lava formations than Hawaii. We think these 10 are the best hikes in Hawaii to lead you to some of the state’s most magnificent volcanic remnants. If you want to see some of the unique and cool things Hawaii has to offer, try one of these amazing trails!
