Hawaii: A Walker's Guide (Google eBook)
A practical guide to the most scenic walks on the major Hawaiian islands of Maui, Molokai, Lanai, Hawaii, Kauai and Oahu. Walks range from easy strolls of a few hours to multi-day excursions where blankets and sleeping backs are de rigeur. Waikiki, the Koolaus, Honolulu, Lahaina, the Seven Pools of Kipahulu, Kaanapali, Iao Valley State Park, Waimea Canyon, Kalalau Valley, the Na Pali Cliffs, Kalaupapa, Kaiholena Gulch, Waipop Valley, and Kilauea all have designated trails covered here. Descriptive text gives you a feel for the area, whether its downtown Honolulu or the lush green slopes of Iao Needle on Kauai. Each hike is graded for its difficulty from "family" to "strenuous," although most are suitable for the entire family. A thoughtful interior design allows you to see the trail's rating, mileage and any permit requirements at a glance."This one's not for either the ultra-lazy pool potatoes or [those who] need step-by-step direction many pro-hiker guides provide. But if you'd like folksy-friendly insider tips to accessible Hawaiian adventures for the whole family, here's your guide."
