Will I need special clothing and special shoes for my Big Island hike?

Nov 1, 2021 | General Information

Hiking on the Big Island can include walking on very rough, uneven terrain with loose rocks, tree roots and other obstacles. You will want to wear comfortable, closed toed shoes with socks and wear comfortable clothing that you don’t mind getting wet and dirty. Tours that ascend to the summit of any of the mountains will require layers of clothing for warmth. Additional garments such as parkas for night tours will be provided by the vendor.
