Maui Trailblazer was chock full of useful information and helpful tips on the best places to hike and snorkel. This book really helped to make our trip amazing! Don't use this book if you plan on staying in the beachy resort towns for your trip  . I won't know if this is successful until later in the year when I finally get to go to Maui. What this book does do, though, is point out the best places to do activities.

I took this book with us on two week trip to Maui where I planned to do a lot of hiking with my husband and 11-year old daughter. When I looked at the book before the trip, I was happy there was a special section on where to hike with kids. Once we went to Maui, I found the book less helpful especially when I compared it with the information in other books.

Maui Trailblazer is easy to read and well organized. It gives clear directions for hiking, surfing and general road trips. Each region is opened with a general overview and a bit of a driving tour. There are highlight sections that direct attention to specialty hikes and the like. It also includes day-trip guides for Molokai and Lanai. -Hawaii Ocean Project. Trails are also divided and cross-referenced depending their special appeal. So, bottom line, if you want a best-highlight, where-to-park, what's-it-like, things-to-note intro to pretty much any tourist trail or walk on Maui, presented by an amiable, observant and knowledgeable guide, this is an excellent choice.

A guide for families and outdoor adventurers alike, "Maui Trailblazer" covers all of the island, and includes day trips to the neighboring islands of Molokai, Lanai, and Molokini. Clear directions and concise descriptions lead to all of Maui's well-known attractions, as well as to hidden discoveries that Trailblazer readers have come to expect.

Most highly regarded guide for Kauai. Contains long lists of recreational activities for every level of endurance. Focuses on hiking and snorkeling. Maps, loaded with photographs.

The subtitle is "where to hike, snorkel, paddle, surf, drive," and even that's an understatement

The subtitle is "where to hike, snorkel, paddle, surf, drive," and even that's an understatement all of it. The writing is gently conversational and downright seductive. Even though I have owned a second home on Maui for many years, the Sprout's Maui Trailblazer helped me discover delightful places I didn't know existed, even in my own neighborhood. The authors' writing style is relaxed and humorous, in keeping with the Island experience.

For a second trip to Maui this year, we decided to forgo the usual spots that everyone knows about (who doesn't know about everything in Maui Revealed by now?), and wanted to get out to be more active. This is the perfect book for that. Every trip is clearly described, activities are highlighted throughout, and it's very easy to sort through by activity, region, attractions, etc. Unlike some guidebooks, this one doesn't sugar-coat every trail/beach/etc. - so you actually feel like you're getting honest advice about what to expect and how to spend your precious vacation time. My favorite tips related to weather - like which trips to save for days when the rest of the island was getting rain, or what to do in the morning before afternoon showers popped up. Highly recommended, worth the cost and weight to carry along.

After taking a look at a few other books on traveling Maui, I decided on Maui Trailblazer (MT). Having been to Maui once before, I wanted my next trip to be a bit more off the beaten path. This book provided just the information I was looking for. The "Best Of" section is a great overview of the island, and would keep you busy for two weeks. The maps divide the island in sections, which is a fabulous way to plan to see all you can. In fact, the beginning of each chapter provides a planned day trip for each of the sections. The descriptions of trails and locations are very specific, but if you don't have a good knack for details, you'll probably want to bring a friend. If you're both bad at directions, this probably isn't the book for you. I found one piece of information that was outdated, but there was a note that access was going to be limited for a period of time. That timeframe had been extended, I guess. Overall, MT helped me to have a great second trip to Maui finding places I wouldn't have found on my own. And, of course, you'll love Maui, and the authors do a great job of helping you to appreciate it as well.

I love this series. They are great for those who enjoy outdoorsy activities like hiking and snorkeling. Other activities, including swimming, biking and scuba are also covered. The descriptions and directions of the locations are spot-on. I own "Trailblazer" books for Maui, Kauai and Hawaii, and they are thorough and helpful when planning the activities for my trip itineraries.

Maui Trailblazer was chock full of useful information and helpful tips on the best places to hike and snorkel. This book really helped to make our trip amazing! Don't use this book if you plan on staying in the beachy resort towns for your trip. This book has TONS of beautiful hikes in the Hana region as well as hikes in other areas.. In my opinion though, the most beauitful hikes were off the Hana Highway and this book pointed us to every single one of them with ease and efficiancy!

This was our go-to book on our first visit to Maui. The book is very easy to read and has a tremendous amount of helpful information. Definitely recommend this!

This book was very comprehensive for Maui. I got the eBook, which worked very well on my iPad Amazon app.

I really loved how it described all of the activities you could do along a particular path, rather than making you look each type of activity up separately (although you had that option if that is what you prefer).

If you are going to Maui, I would get this book!

Love this book! Even great on the kindle easy to go through the menus and takes you directly to hidden treasures of Maui especially the swinging bridges and the bailey museum and offers ways to reach hidden places! I will keep it for. Reference for more adventures on Maui .
I bought this book to get an idea of where to hike on Maui -- without hiring a guide to show me the way. I won't know if this is successful until later in the year when I finally get to go to Maui.

What this book does do, though, is point out the best places to do activities. Then you can do further research in other books. I'm not gonna spend more money on another book! But I will, however, use this book as the basis for doing more research on the internet just to justify what the book states as the best To Dos in Maui.
