It takes dedication and planning to visit this national park in the South Pacific unless you already find yourself in that part of the world. The National Park of American Samoa actually spans over 3 islands but we only visited the park on the main island of Tutuila. Most of the park is actually located under water as the national park helps preserve the coral reef life. The climate in American Samoa is hot and humid so any hikes should be planned in the early morning. There are a couple of villages located within the park boundaries as well. The land is owned by the locals but the National Park services helps preserve it. We attempted to take a short hike to the lookout point at the end of the Lower Sauma Ridge Trail but it was quite painful with the humidity. We did make it to the lookout and it was well worth it. There were also markers along the way to teach us about Samoan culture and the land.
