Munro Trail is a circuitous, 12.8-mile path that offers the only chance to see all six Hawaiian islands at once – on a very clear day that is. The evolving forest, canyon and ocean views that travelers can marvel at are unforgettable. When you reach the top, you'll see Lanai's highest peak, Lanaihale (House of Lanai), which sits at 3,370 feet.
Many Lanai visitors claim that traversing the trail was the best part of their vacation. And note that though it's possible to hike and bike the path, most people use a Jeep.
Be sure to check with a knowledgeable local or your hotel concierge before embarking on your journey: Located in the center of the island, Munro Trail can become impassable due to rainfall. The trail starts just north of Lanai City and ends in the Palawai Basin. The full trek will take you two to three hours with a car, depending on road conditions and how often you stop for photos. And note that there are no facilities along the trail, so you'll want to bring plenty of water, food and a full tank of fuel. Access to the trail is free.
