Kapaeleele Trail

Webpage
Would not do it again. Trail was muddy due to rain and it was hard to walk through some bushes etc. Did not enjoy it much.

Makapuu Point Lighthouse

July 13, 2011
If you dont want to hike up and can skip the higher view of the surrounding and of the lighthouse (no access!), then just go to the Makapuu Scienic View which is just the next stop.

Manoa Falls

July 16, 2011
Also movie location for Jurassic Park. 1 hour minimum hike. Parking at the restaurant costs 5 USD.
It has rained before so that the trail was muddy a lot. I had to throw out my shoes afterwards.
