About the Makapuu Point State Wayside

An introduction with general information and facts about the Makapuu Point State Wayside on the southeast side of the island of Oahu in Hawaii.

ENTITY: Makapuu Point State Wayside
SIZE: forty acreS
"Makapuu Point State Wayside is part of the eastern end of Oahu encompassing Makapuu Head and the lighthouse at Makapu Ľu Point. A paved road, open to the public for foot traffic only, leads out to the Makapu Ľu Lighthouse. The trail is roughly 1.75 miles (2.82 km) long and rises mostly heading towards the south along the land-side of the ridge and curves around Puu o Kipahulu (southern end of the ridge), then traverses the ridge bearing right towards the lighthouse, which is closed to the public. A trail leads up from the former Coast Guard residential area to a summit from which the islands of Molokai and Lanai may be seen across the Kaiwi Channel. On particularly clear days, the island of Maui can be visible. Of interest to hikers visiting the wayside park is the possibility of seeing Humpback whales in the waters offshore between the months of November and April. A telescope is available to the public at the summit lookout. There are so-called blowholes along the rocky shore below Makapuu Head which are sometimes active."
