Owner description: Further along Kalanianaole Highway is the Makapuu Lighthouse hiking trail. This easy route with its moderate incline to the 647-ft. summit is a popular spot during whale season between December and April. This is a definite photo opportunity even when humpbacks aren’t spouting offshore. If you’re really ambitious, tackle a pre-sunrise hike to the top so you can grab a glorious photo of the sunrise.

“3rd trip to this trail”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

i love this hike! is so nice - sidewalk all the way so not too bad. Stunning views. Where the picture and information about the humpback whales - you can hike down to some tide pools and swim. Bring a lock to prove you were there at top!

“Nice easy, paved trail”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Nice views of Rabbit Island and such. This is a nice easy family friendly trail (wide, paved, not steep). The views are nice of the coastal beaches. Parking was pretty decent given the number of people around (some head to the beaches others do the trail).

“Must do while in Oahu”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

One of my favorite hikes on the island! There were alot of people in sandals and dress up clothes which surprised me. I run 5k almost daily and there were two or three sharp inclines that got my heart rate up.. Other than that its a simple hike. So many beautiful photo opportunities. And the top has a beautiful view. You MUST visit this trail!!
