Makapu'u Point Lighthouse Trail: Great Hike for Families

The Makapu’u Lighthouse Trail is a great family-friendly hike and perfect for newbie hikers like me.  There is a small parking lot that opens at 7am which fills up fast.  We arrived at 7:45am on a Saturday and already had to park alongside the road.   

The trail is paved with a slight incline so it’s very popular.  It never felt overcrowded with the exception of the small lookout area that’s perfect for group pictures.  The top lookout point was closed due to construction. 

I thought the 1.5 miles round trip hike was perfect in length.  Although, my eight year old daughter would argue it was too long as she complained most of the way.  Still, this was a great introductory hike for her.  The only downside is there isn’t any shade and there are no public restrooms.  But the exercise, fresh air, and views more than make up for it.

And we are off!

Beautiful views!

When you need to rest, just sit in the middle of the trail!  No, don't do that. 

Our group was all smiles (kind of) at the top!

This was a really fun hike with amazing views!
