My husband and I took the stroll up the paved trailway to the Makapu’u Point Lighthouse. We arrived to the parking lot to find it full, even with folks leaving! So we parked in the “Scenic View” area parking lot and walked the paved trailway. The weather was gorgeous and there were many tourists as well as locals with baby strollers and dogs. This is considered a hike, but if you are a seasoned/experienced hiker, it’s a stroll! :)

I did meet a couple of folks from the “Soulmates” hiking group and spoke with them for a couple of minutes. Some were also planning to hike the New Years Day hike to Koko Crater (Kohelepelepe, 1208ft).
