TOTAL TIME: 3 hrs... I think
PARTICIPANTS: "Reef Shoes" Jason, "Rambo" Jeremy, "Bloody" Jean, Me
REHIKE VALUE: 8
The last time I did this, I only ran up the paved road to the lookout at back. I had no idea what I was missing. Exploring Makapu'u Point has to be one of the most rewarding hikes on island. It's one of those "hiking buffets" where you can pick and choose what you want to make the perfect meal of a hike.

Great variety, good views, easy hike. Excellent for a date, a picnic, or your walker leaning grandma. Okay, maybe without the walker, but definitely a good family outing.
