I love the beach and ocean but I also like vegetation and rocks. I'm from Kansas. It's flat and barren for the most part. My Ideal of a hike is seeing a variety of nature. A thicket of bamboo, mountain views, ocean views and some climbing is what I hope to find. We are staying at Kaanapali Beach area but are thinking about taking the Road to Hana and might go to Polo Beach area. We probably won't do the volcano.
Several short hike suggestions. Nothing over 5 miles and preferably under two.
