Parks & Trails
The Hawaiian Islands are aglow with incredible, heavenly hues, and the many public trails and parks lend front-row seats to these stunning views. If it’s not the heart-stopping sunrise, it’s a panoramic view of the land cradled by the sea, or a cool, bright forest of indigenous trees and flowers. You don’t need to be a serious hiker for these unforgettable sights; you just have to know where to go.

Oahu may be the most developed island, with a bustling city and complex history, but it still has miles and miles of beautiful scenes to explore; botanical gardens up to 600 acres, fresh water lakes and, of course, long walks on the beach.
There’s no view on Maui that doesn’t astound. Whether it’s Mount Haleakala touching the clouds or a purple silhouette of the neighboring islands, every sight is picture-perfect, especially from these trails.
Hawaii, the Big Island
The Big Island has the greatest diversity in features of all the Hawaiian Islands from snow-capped mountains and flowing lava to lush rainforests and rugged coastlines, and there are public parks and trails available to see them all.
A few extra thousands of years—that’s how much older Kauai is than the other islands, and it shows in the rich foliage and untouched lands. While many of its best views can be had overhead, there’s nothing as serene and peaceful as a nature walk through Kauai.
