Hiking Hawaii’s Iconic Kalalau Trail Now Requires A Reservation

Hawaii offers a treasure trove of hidden gems, many of which can be experienced via a network of splendid hiking trails. And while many of these trails can be enjoyed freely, some require a bit more planning. The ever-popular Kalalau Trail now requires hikers to make a reservation in advance, according to officials. The intention behind this new policy is to protect the area, which has been made vulnerable by storms and flooding in the past two years.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
