Lanai hiking
Grab a patch of coast on pineapple island

See Lanai like few people do: The Munro Trail is a 10.5-mile off-road vehicle route that'll challenge any hiker or biker. You'll follow the mountain ridges through high-country forests and swirling misty clouds while passing over 3,370-foot Lana'ihale, the highest peak on the island. You'll take in some spectacular views of valleys, gulches, the Palawai Basin, and old pineapple plantation fields. Just watch out: At the higher elevations, the cooling trade winds can be quite gusty. And the narrow, winding gravel/dirt road is no piece of cake: It can be rutted, muddy, and impassable during wet weather. Along the way, keep an eye out for deer, wild turkeys, and other game birds.
