Napali coast (Kauai)
Pihea TrailThick fog often draws on the Napali coast. So you should start the Pihea Trail to Kilohana Lookout early at already 7 clock in the morning.
Napali TrailStarting from the parking lot at Ke'e Beach in Haena State Park, the Napali Trail (12 km) first climbs steep through tropical rain forest.
Sliding Sand Trail (Maui)
The Sliding sand trail leads on a length of 12 miles into the inside of the Haleakala crater. The target on the crater ground is located about 1000 m deeper than the starting point on the crater rim at 3000 m altitude. Therefore, more time is needed to be taken into account for the continuously ascending way back to the crater rim in the thin air. Sufficient drinks and protective clothing are recommended. Because every time the sea of ??clouds can rise above the crater rim and fill the giant caldera of Haleakala.|
You can walk back the same way or take back the Halemau'u Trail. Along the trail, you also can find the rare silver sword, an endemic plant.
Without to much effort you can experience the Sliding sand trail on horseback. A Hawaiian company drives the horses every day by truck to the parking lot below the Haleakala summit.
Disadvantage: The tour takes place even in bad weather conditions, ie fog instead.
