Overview

A guide for families and outdoor adventurers alike, this 2015 fifth edition of Maui Trailblazer covers all of the island, and also 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. 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, including a 15-picture color insert. 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. This new and completely revised fifth edition for 2015 includes a Trailblazer Kids section for adventuring families.

Editorial Reviews

Outside
For hiking, snorkeling, surfing, biking locations, this is the guide to take along.
Midwest Book Review
In both layout design and content, the very model of what a user-friendly outdoor guide should be.
New York Times
Many of Maui's attractions are easy to find. But other places are off the beaten track.I recommend a guidebook called Maui Trailblazer, which has detailed descriptions of trails and remote natural sites.
