American Samoa Hiking Map
National Park of American Samoa. Pola Island trail (1) is super easy flat walk along a old road leading to surf pounded steep rocky beach. The beach talks as large breakers pick up the volcanic rocks and roll them back to the sea.
Tuafanua Trail (6) is a bit more challenging despite being only 2.2 miles. Sweeping views await at the ridge crest after a easy 15 minute stroll up a well built switch back trail. After taking in the view an adrenaline pumping decent begins down what must be the steepest trail in the entire National Park system. Nearly the entire decent toward the striking blue waters below is accomplished via ladder and rope.
American Samoa National Park Hike on Tuafanua Trail makes one think of the child hood game 'Shoots and Ladders'.
