More About This Book

Overview

A guide for families and outdoor adventurers alike, this new fourth edition of Maui Trailblazer 2012 covers all of the island, and includes day trips to the neighboring islands of Molokai, Lanai, and Molokini. Clear directions and concise descriptions lead to all of Maui's well-known attractions, as well as to hidden discoveries that Trailblazer readers have come to expect. 137 different hikes and strolls to tropical rain forests and remote valleys, coastal bluffs and lava caves, Haleakala crater and the Hana Highway, cascading waterfalls, beaches, ridgetops, towns, whale-watching perches, historic sites, and archeological ruins. Among the 44 snorkeling spots are hike-to coves and the secret places that tour boats go. Kayakers can pick from about 20 put-ins. Surfers can select from 38 beaches and decide whether to boogie, board, or body surf. Onlookers will find the best places to watch the surfers, windsurfers and kite-boarders ride the big ones. The text is complimented by 10 maps and 240 photographs. Driving tours-nine of them-take readers to all the attractions, natural wonders, and historic sites. A Resource Links section provides numbers for free visitor information and recreational outfitters, as well as hand-picked accommodations and local restaurants to suit every budget and taste bud. A Best Of section lets you pick the right activity to suit your mood and the day. Appendices include free hula shows, farmer's markets, what to pack, climate, history, fauna, and a Hawaiian glossary. You will also find numerous vacation safety advice and tips on free things to do on the island. Sections on Maui's history as well as wildlife (whales, dophins, sharks, turtles, seals) add depth to your visit.
This new and completely revised fourth edition for 2012 includes a Trailblazer Kids section for adventuring families.

    Our travel agent said the Maui Trailblazer is the best guidebook

    Our travel agent said the Maui Trailblazer is the best guidebook available for Maui and using it over a period of two weeks we can agree with that. The directions are well written and the trails are all illustrated with pictures. They tell you how many feet you'll climb and give you the mileage. A short preview sentence sums up what you'll see in a nutshell.
    We also followed their snorkeling recommendations, some of our favorite days there. It's incredible how much information is inside.
    The authors have grouped all the activities according to locale which made so much sense. In one day we were able to stand on the summit of Haleakala and by afternoon take a swim at Baldwin Beach. All their research sure paid off for us.

    For sure this book has the lowdown on all the best hiking and snorkeling on Maui. A lot of it is the standard tourist stuff you'll find in other books, but much of the content we would have driven right by if we had not had this guide. I really like the Aloha spirit that this book conveys---and all the cultural opportunities it presents, like volunteering with the nonprofit groups.

    Special

    As hikers and masters swimmers we were drawn to this book for exercise and enjoying the pleasures of Maui. Did not disappoint. We saw so much always on our own pace. Three weeks of wonderful exploring thanks to the Trailblazers.
