The Hikers Guide to the Hawaiian Islands

The Hikers Guide to the Hawaiian Islands

In Stock

Written in the same accessible style and format as the highly successful The Hikers Guide to Oahu, this updated and expanded volume includes the best day hikes and backpacks on the Big Island, Kauai, Maui, and Oahu. Each island is represented by thirteen hikes, for a total of fifty-two in all. Together, they offer residents and visitors the essential information to safely explore some of Hawaii’s most spectacular scenery.

For each trip, the author provides directions to the trailhead, a detailed route description, a topographical map, and facts on hike length, elevation gain, and degree of difficulty. For GPS users, UTM and latitude/longitude coordinates are added for the trailhead and endpoint of each route. The expanded notes section helps readers identify and appreciate geological features, historical points of interest, and commonly encountered plants and birds along the trail. An insert of color photographs highlights the breathtaking scenery enjoyed by hikers.

Stuart M. Ball, Jr. has been hiking in Hawaii for more than thirty years and is a hike coordinator for the Hawaiian Trail and Mountain Club. Retired from the Bank of Hawaii, he holds a BA from Dartmouth College and an MBA from Stanford University.
