Oahu is the Hawaiian Islands' most popular tourist destination. Day Hikes on Oahu will help you decide which of the popular areas is worth exploring and also offer several options for hiking in more secluded locations with equally spectacular scenery. These 57 day hikes include everything from beach strolls to dense forests to breathtaking overlooks, accommodating every level of hiking experience. Highlights include volcanic craters, ancient cultural shrines, long thin waterfalls, tropical preserves, ridge trails, and stream-fed swimming holes. Each hike is accompanied by a map, summary, and clear directions.

Robert Stone grew up hiking and backpacking in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Northern California. As a boy he learned and practiced the basics of wilderness survival and low impact camping. Robert has lived in the Rocky Mountains of Montana since the late 1970s. When he is not traveling, he continues to horsepack and hike extensively throughout Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, and the Beartooth Mountains. His love of travel and deep interest in the outdoors led Robert to work on hiking guides year-round as a writer, photographer, and publisher. He has hiked every trail in every Day Hikes book.
