Maui Nui, comprised of Maui, Molokaʻi, and Lānaʻi, has an incredible density of reserves and other natural areas to explore via the Nā Ala Hele trails and access system. From the wet, montane forests of Molokaʻi Forest Reserve to the other-worldly slopes of Haleakalā, Maui Nui has an amazing diversity of places to explore.

If you’re preparing for a hike and looking for use and access information on a specific trail, we host that information on the mobile app Outerspatial and in your web browser at the interactive Hawaiʻi Trails portal. The Hawaiʻi Trails portal also includes information for commercial trail vendors.
