|The rustic Munro Trail begins just north of Lanai City, Named for George Munro, the naturalist from New Zealand who arrived in 1890, this 12.8 mile, one-lane dirt road offers sweeping vistas amongst the majestic Cook pine trees introduced by Munro himself.
The trail offers spectacular views and the 1,600-foot elevation takes you through a rain forest filled with ohia lehua, ironwood, eucalyptus and pine trees. Only 2.5 miles into the trail you’ll find a scenic lookout. You'll discover stunning canyon views of Maunalei gulch as well as neighboring islands of Maui, Molokai, Kahoolawe, Hawaii's Big Island and Oahualong the way. The trail, which can also be biked or hiked, also takes you to the top of Lanaihale (House of Lanai), Lanai's highest peak at 3,370 feet.
