Full Moon Hike to Makapuu

  • Feb 25, 2013 · 5:45 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The plan is to hike up to the Makapuu Lighthouse “overlook” just before sundown (sets at 6:34 PM), drink some wine or whatever and eat some snacks and watch the full moon come up. Then hike back down to the cars (in the dark!).

We will be hiking the old Cost Guard road to the lighthouse overlook. The hike up is about ½ mile and will take about 30 -45 minutes. It’s an easy hike – just watch out for potholes in the road and stay on the trail. In addition to your drinks and snacks, bring a jacket or sweater, flashlight, a cushion or something to sit on (the rocks get awful hard after a few minutes), camera and whatever else you can't live without.

(yes I hauled a chair and pizza up the hill hehe)

Driving Directions: From Honolulu drive East on H1 & Kalanianaole Hwy past Hawaii Kai, Hanauma Bay , Sandy Beach. Also go past the parking lot for the Makapuu Point Lighthouse (it closes at about 10:00 PM ) and continue to Makapuu Beach Lookout and park at the top of the hill. Be sure to not leave anything of value in your car. Walk back down the road and into the Makapuu Point Lighthouse parking lot. We will Meetup at the trail head at 7:00 PM

From Kaneohe / Kailua take Kalanianaole Hwy (72) East past Enchanted Lakes and Waimanalo and Sea Life Park . Continue up the hill and park at the Makapuu Beach Lookout. Walk down the road and into the to the Makapuu Point Lighthouse parking lot.

We will meet at the trailhead at 5:45PM. If you're late just meet up with us there.

FYI: Please also note cops leave after it gets dark so if you don't want anything valuable to accidentally break itself and walk away from your car, don't leave anything tempting in there!
