Best Maui Hikes was created while hiking “Swinging Bridges” one of the hikes included in the guide. Two friends, both avid Maui hikers, came up with the idea because so many guides simply list a bunch of trails and often don’t include usable maps, current information or pictures of the actual trails. We set out to remedy that by creating a compilation of what we consider the best hikes on Maui.
The criteria we used to decide which hikes would be considered came down to these factors: interesting topography, diverse foliage and shade at least part of the trail, a wide range of difficulty levels, and finally, fun factor! We cut out any hikes that proved too dangerous for most hikers and came up with a few hikes that could be enjoyed by everyone.
We included some easy, short hikes and some longer, more difficult hikes too. The hikes, or trails are in different areas around the island, so if you’re visiting the island of Maui you can be sure that at least one of the Best Maui Hikes is within an hour drive of your hotel. And if you’re living here on Maui, there’s plenty of reason to get out of the water and experience the remarkable trails on Maui!
Aloha and Mahalo
