    The only O`ahu hiking book you need (or want)

    I won a copy of the first edition of this book in a contest in 1994, and since then it has helped me find dozens of beautiful and enjoyable trails. <P> Some of the highlights include great descriptions of the flora along the trail, reproductions of topo maps for each hike that show you the pitch of the trail(although you should probably get the real topo if you plan to get lost), clear route descriptions that show that the author has been on these trails many times, and a wonderful layout. <p> It is the best hiking book I have ever read (although I've probably only read about a dozen). It is without equal among O`ahu hiking books.

    Good guide but use with caution as it's old.

    Good book but be aware some of the hikes description and status are outdated, even in the revised edition of 2000. Use caution when using this guide to attempt hikes. Author needs to make an updated version.
