A:Maui’s lone national park is divided into two sections: the Summit District, a volcanic moonscape of rusty cinder desert, and the Kipahulu District, a lush coastal area. The Summit District is where you want to go for serious hiking. There’s a 35-mile network of trails up here, including three public-use cabins and some designated backcountry campsites. Blue Hawaii this is not: the summit is up above 10,000 feet and the wind can drop temperatures below freezing, so come prepared for cold and altitude.
