The Napau Crater Trail is found in The Volcano National Park Located on the island of Hawai’i, the largest and newest of the Hawaiian islands. The park is home to two active volcanoes, Kilauea, one of the world’s most active volcanoes and Mauna Loa, one of the world’s largest.  The beginning of the trail is found just off the Chain of Craters Road 12km south of the Kilauea Visitor’s Centre, there is a carpark right at the trailhead.

The Haiku Stairs are found on O’ahu, one of the Hawaiian Islands.  The steps lead from the foot of the Ko’olau Mountain Range starting at 160 meters above sea level to a summit of 800 meters where an old decommissioned naval radio station sits.  The horizontal ground covered when climbing to the top is only 1.5km from step 1 to step 3,922 but the climb is pretty steep and ladder like in places.  The views of the mountain and the surrounding island out to the ocean are amazing from the stairs, this is definitely one of the best hiking attractions this island has to offer.
