When I moved to Hawaii, I spent a lot of time researching hikes! It's hard to find a page where there is a compacted list that I could print off and add my own notes. I had to Google, Yelp, Yahoo, Bing, and scour the Internet to find information on varioushikes. There are still trails that I haven't even heard of, so I am constantly adding hikes to my "Hiking Bucket list." Please take some time and research the hike you are planning before you leave your house. Always make sure that you bring enough water, and you do not hike alone on an unfamiliar trail! There are probably a lot more trails that are not included in my list below, but I do not encourage people to partake in illegal hikes. Next week,I will start my "Hiking" series where I will highlight some of the trails below. If you have any suggestions or additions to my list, please let me know!

This list is not in any particular order! Image title
