Hiking – Without Leaving a Trace
You choose the island, absorb the beauty while hiking. If you are not an experienced hiker, there are guided hiking trips. Experience the beauty of the natural trails of the islands, or venture to a specific area.
Oahu offers beautiful Waterfall hiking tours that cover an area of 2-miles round-trip. The visual view of waterfalls is breathtaking as the water plunges over the edge dropping 200-feet while you take in the tropical plants of the Hawaiian Islands at your feet. The fresh, moist air with the fragrance of the tropical vegetation is lets you know you’ve arrived in paradise.
A more challenging hike would be the Olomana Hike on Kailua. Another breathtaking scene. The peaks at Olomana are simply amazing. Not all peaks are for every level hiker, but I’m sure there’s a unique hiking place on one of the trails of Olomana that you’ll cherish forever. Visualize a view from a high peak overlooking a valley of lush green vegetation. Remember, no bikes allowed and hiking rule “Leave No Trace” applies.
The “Leave No Trace Rule” is a gentle kindness hikers apply to the sport. Carry back what you carry on the trip, be gentle where you step to observe the preservation of new growth, don’t create new paths and disrupt nature. Above all enjoy the scenic beauty of nature.
Hiking on any the Hawaiian Islands is beauty untouched.
