Traditional Folded Maui Maps

If you want a traditional folded Maui map, I recommend purchasing the folded version of the Frankos Maui map ($6) from the Mail Order Hawaii website to give you a good orientation of the Road to Hana.

Frankos Maui Maps

What makes Frankos maps unique? Descriptions and tips are written right on the map.

So you don't have to read about a destination in a Maui book, then locate that destination on a map.

It's like you scribbled your own personal vacation notes all over your own personal map.

Franko also has a laminated Maui map (great to use as a placemat at home or during your Maui vacation), folded and laminated Maui dive and snorkel maps, and a 6"x9" laminated Maui fish ID card.

Frankos Maui MapOr visit my Maui Guides page for a variety of traditional Maui folded maps, including Frankos Maui Guide Map, that highlight the Maui volcano Haleakala.

If you purchase the map in advance of your Maui vacation, you can spread the map out for some trip planning on the long flight to Maui.

So for a few bucks, you can get some Maui specific maps that focus on what you want to see as a vacationer, rather than a focus on advertisements.

Hiking Tours

A Haleakala crater hike from Hike Maui includes up to three trails to accumulate four miles - Hosmer's Cove Trail, Halemauu, and Sliding Sands Trail. Hike Maui declares their trail guides to be 'the best trained naturalist guides on Maui'.

Horseback Riding

Riding horseback into the Maui Volcano Haleakala crater is an alternative to hiking the Sliding Sands trail. Instead, you descend from the volcano summit down into the crater on horseback. The Ka Moa O Pele Junction Ride is offered by Pony Express Tours.
