Quick drive from Honolulu, easy access, easy hike and great view. Parking can be difficult when the trail is busy so it might take a little patience.
This is a pretty easy hike with beautiful views at the top. Of course, the whole trail is paved and would be appropriate for any age range. But, don't forget some water- being out in the open with the sun beating down and no shade gets a bit warm. Truly, a must do hike for beginners or those more experienced... More
Highly recommend this hike with amazing views. Parking is limited but we found a spot. Take water as it was hot. Not as crowded as Diamond Head. This is a place I will bring guests.
This hike starts from the parking lot leading to a viewpoint above makapuu lighthouse. The path is paved so you can take a stroller all the way up. I didn't feel the hike was too strenuous and having it paved made for little to no issue about navigating the terrain. We didn't see any whales but we did go up... More

Good parking, an easy paved trail up to the lookout over Makapu'u. For a sunrise view from the lookout, you will have to park on the road and walk in. The parking lot doesn't open early enough to get to the lookout in time for the sunrise.
I enjoy hiking A LOT, so I was up for this hike. Being from Colorado, and most of the hikes I do being mountains, I figured this hike would be an ease. Even the tour guide on the bus dropping us off stated how easy the hike was. WRONG. It is a steep incline. Be prepared. It isn't the worse... More
The views are spectacular and the hike is great for a good work out. Truly peaceful hike with breath taking views of the East End of Oahu. On a clear day you can see Moloka'i and Maui in the distance.
I would rank the hike at a moderate level of physical fitness. Recommend going early before the heat sets in, and taking water. You'll see lots of whales in February and March.
