Hawaii - Makapu'u Lighthouse Trail

Hi everybody! My name is Sarah and I’m one of the two Ambassadors for GWH Hawaii! I’ll be leading this hike. 

The first 10 members that say they are going to this event and create a small post with something interesting about yourself will receive special giveaway prizes on the day of the hike!

This hike is a paved for part of the hike up to the top. It is 800 ft elevation gain and will take 2-3 hours. Please be sure to wear good hiking shoes with grip. It is a 3.2 mile roundtrip hike.

Parking is at the Kaiwi State Scenic Shoreline off of Kalanianaole Highway. We will meet in the parking lot. If you are busing like me you can get off at the stop before and walk to the parking lot or get off at Sea Life and walk back up to the trailhead. Be careful on the highway when doing this! 

This hike is Dog Friendly but make sure to bring ample water for both you and your pet as there is not any shade. While dogs are allowed, please make sure your dog is prepared for a hike of this magnitude – elderly dogs and young puppies should
stay at home. remember this is an 18+ all female event so please do not bring husbands, boyfriends, or children along.

To complete this hike, I highly recommend bringing
electrolytes, snacks, at least 2 L of water, and any other essentials. Sunscreen or a hat is a great idea since this hike has very little shade. 

Remember, this organization is open to hikers of all skill levels. Our goal is to be as inclusive as possible. 

As with all GWH events, you must sign the GWH waiver before
attending – it takes less than a minute to sign, and once you’ve signed it once you’re good to go for all future meetups.
