These authors have got it right when it comes to writing a guidebook for the unsedentary visitor. The Molokai ferry ride and drive around that they describe on pages 180 to 190 was worth the trip over alone. We spent an entire afternoon exploring the moody west side of Haleakala that hardly anyone goes to...Polipoli Springs State Park.
Don't leave home without it.
After my overview drive around, I went back to hike the choice trails that the authors put their Best Of stamp on. Even though I went solo I never felt alone. The swamp, in particular, was for me the most interesting hike (views + vegetation) I've ever been on. One you won't stumble upon unless you're guided there.
For snorkeling it contains a long list too. I just didn't have enough time for everything.
Incidentally, I also highly recommend taking a look at Maui Revealed by Andrew Doughty for frank recommendations on restaurants and many other activities. It isn't as devoted to outdoor activities, but we found the recommendations to be very honest and helpful.
I liked this book because it doesn't glorify or exaggerate Maui, it just tells you honestly how it is and what to expect .
It loaded me up with a steady stream of choices. Whatever I hankered for, it was easy to find, whether in the water or in the outback. All the trails were rated according to their highlights. I knew what I was getting into. There's also a really nice balance of photos and text. I could go on and on with compliments. It captures this island in a nutshell.

Some really cool less traveled spots. Directions seem confusing at first, but once on location will make more sense and are quite accurate. Do drive the back road to/out of Hana.Published on August 14, 2014 by mike.mak
