You’ll need to pack more than just your flip-flops for your next trip to Hawaii — at least if you want to take advantage of everything the islands offer. Hiking in Hawaii is one of the best ways to see the islands’ interiors, especially as the volcanic archipelago is home to some of the wettest, densest, and most beautiful trails in the US.
