My wife Sheree and I picked up a Nissan LEAF electric car from rent-by-the-hour GreenCar Hawaii in Honolulu, then headed out on H1 East and HI-72 East toward the Makapu’u Point State Wayside to park and begin our hike up the paved Makapu-u Trail. A guidebook described the hike as ‘easy and breezy.’ We found the two mile hike a bit steep at times but very do-able. Reaching the summit provides a great view of the Makapu’u lighthouse and two small islands nearby – Manana and Kaohikaipu.The lighthouse itself is not accessible to the public.
