Mahana Ridge Trail

Make your way through tall trail grass, up stone steps and into a tropical rainforest. The Mahana Ridge Trail is a treat for avid hikers and those with a lot of stamina. This out-and-back trail doesn't have a specific vista view or wow-factor destination to reach. Instead, the beauty of the hike is found in the many different species of plants and wildlife that you will encounter on your way.

The Mahana Ridge Trail is 9.9 miles one way, so many people just hike a portion of the trail and turn around. If you are an avid hiker and you want to try the whole trail, make sure to start really early and bring plenty of food and water.
