Overview

This eBook has the same content as the Sprout's printed version with the same title—a 2011 publication that is currently sold on B&N.com. A guide for families and outdoor adventurers alike, Trailblazer takes you to all of the Big Island's famous attractions, as well as its hidden spots. Nearly twice the size of the other islands combined, the Big Island presents a challenge to visitors with a limited time. Trailblazer comes to the rescue with its trademark organization, trail descriptions, and detailed driving directions.

You'll find about 150 hikes and strolls—rain forests, beaches, coastal hikes, gardens, mountain trails, and quaint towns. All the best snorkeling spots and swimming beaches are included, as well as surfing spots and the best places to be a spectator. Mountain bikers and road cyclists can choose from more than two-dozen trails and scenic roads.

Trailblazer has just enough historical and cultural background to lend depth, without being tedious. Extras include a Trailblazer Kids section, Driving Tours, safety tips, a Best Of section, and a complete Resource Links section for hand-picked restaurants and lodgings, Hawaiiana stores, tours and outfitters, and visitor information. Trailblazer is a complete guide for active and curious travelers with loads of budget saving advice. Trailblazer has a 15-picture color insert, 225 black and white photos, and nine maps. Rustic accommodations and campgrounds are also mapped and described.
