Just an archipelagic speck in the middle of the Pacific, Hawai'i is a green gem in an otherwise endless stretch of blue. It may come as a surprise, then, that this small island chain in the middle of the ocean has a variety of day hikes to enjoy. Its roughly 6,000 square miles encompass several active volcanoes whose summits puncture the clouds, rugged ridgelines, dense jungles, and a canyon they call the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. Some visitors are drawn to the beach and the lifestyle it supports, others are called by the intimate culture of the locals; whatever draws you to the islands of Hawaii, make sure you carve out some of your time to explore the islands on foot. Here are some suggestions to get you going.
