Getting around on Tutuila

Forum does not look like it is very active but hope someone can tell me if it is necessary to rent a car in order to get to the National Park hiking trails. Could we find lodging close to the park and or public transportation that would allow us to get to/from the park/airport without a vehicle? Plan to visit sometime in February, 2012.

Thanks, NPH

I'm here now. You definitely need a rental car. Public buses are scattered and not really on a defined schedule, at least not one a tourist can figure out. All of the park trails are free; pony up the $70 to rent a car for the day and chalk it up to an inflated entrance fee. The views and trails are ASTONISHING, and if you made it all the way here, do yourself a favor and explore.
