272 pp, 8vo (8 7/16" H). B&w photographs, maps. "Hawaii is the largest island in the Hawaiian Island chain. It is an island filled with contrasts: on its west side vast lava 'moonscapes' stretch from mountains nearly 14,000 feet high to a coast that's dotted with shimmering blue bays, in the north a remote valley with its walls richly clothed in rainforest greenery and streaked with waterfalls protects a way of life that harkens back to the 1900's, and on the east side Earth's most active volcano destroys famous black-sand beaches and begins to create new ones just a few miles away. This guidebook contains walks that will satisfy everyone, ranging from easy strolls to strenuous, multi-day hikes. (It) covers the entire island, describing 60 walking tours and trips in all the hiking areas. For each trip, Morey describes the trail, and provides information on distance, difficulty, driving instructions, and average hiking time. Many trip descriptions include Hawaiian legends or interesting tidbits about the area of the trip. You'll find equipment suggestions, hiking tips, permission and permit requirements, and geological and historical information. The best way to experience Hawaii is on foot, and 'Hawaii Trails' will set you on a path toward discovery of the fascinating wonders of the Big Island." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very light rubbing.
