    Cynthia Zurowski Awa reviewed North Trail

    5 months ago

    This is one of 3 trails starting at the cape lookout trailhead parking lot. The hike starts to the right. It’s an immediate decend, but you are walking thru forestry and lots of roots. That means coming back be prepared for a slight incline to return. Halfway thru the trail you will reach a suspension bridge and after that nice coastal views as you reach the beach. The tide pools are fun to explore and we found about 6 full sand dollars. This trail is definitely way less trafficked than the cape lookout hike.

    Like most people reviews take the path to the right (east and trek uphill and get that workout part over with. It is a steep uphill climb for the first 20 minutes and you level out to a hikers camp area. Before looping back enjoy the lighthouse views and the black sand beaches below that I will find a way to get to sooner or later. The decend is pretty good and we finished this hike in less than 2 hours because we did stop and explore a bit. Since we paid the $5 Ecola day pass we started with this hike then drove to the other parking lot and did Cresent beach trail as well.

    I would rate this trail more of easy, but I guess its listed as moderate because it can be slippery in some areas. It has decent levelled trails the entire way. I loved seeing all the roots on the trails and the fact that we were pretty much walking parallel to the ocean is amazing itself. Enjoy the beach when you get to the bottom. The parking lot will fill up fast so get there early, plan a day or a bbq/lunch there since the parking lot park area does have ample picnic tables. Cool for all ages!

    We started at the Elk Meadows trailhead, note you need a forest pass $30yr or $5 day you can buy at this trailhead. There are about 3 other trailheads you can start this hike on but we chose this one. During the summer there are TONS of beargrass and other wildflowers we enjoyed seeing. I would not rate this as moderate but a little less. There was one stretch of uphill during the first quarter mile or so. We were fortunate to finish this hike without crossing paths of anyone and we started at 7am. Umbrella falls was pretty and Sahale falls was also a fun adventure to hike down to as well. The trail was well marked no doubt but we did also hike it during the summer when all the snow had melted. When in doubt turn on your alltrails app and boom no hesitation at all. I would hike it again as an add on while in Hood Mt area for sure.

    use the alltrails gps to track where you are going if its your first time or unsure. We were fortunate to go in with people who had been there so they helped guide us and over water areas. Wear good shoes but be prepared to get knee deep wet in some areas. You are trecking through a beautiful bamboo forest. Bug repellent will help. This hike is not really hard but I'd agree with the moderate because of the water works you are going through. The falls are amazing and did not disappoint!

    Forestry pass needed and park opens at 8am. Get there early to avoid crowds. Depending on season (now) there is a lot of sun exposure even at the early hours. Lots of inclines, I'd say the entire hike is almost uphill so going down can be quick. Hardy falls and Pool of the winds is a sweet cool treat halfway up. The top of the mountain is a nice view but very obstructed by brush..there is however a nice rock lookout to the right on the way up to the top about 1 mile before hitting the top. Nice wildflowers during this time and views of Mt Hood and Mt Adams were awesome.

    Depending on weather you should go early regardless to avoid crowds. Sun was out today and it was amazing beautiful where you could see the coastal line and 4 mountains. Wildflowers are still out so it was a treat. Good grip shoes and walking sticks help a lot. Lots of open areas so if sun is out it will beam down and add more to the hike in terms of moderate. Beautiful day so worth it this time around.

    Cynthia Zurowski Awa reviewed Makapu'u Point Lighthouse Trail (Kaiwi)

    Start early like most say because the parking gets filled and it’s a hot paved trail to the top. No bathrooms, clean path, beautiful views. There is a side trail which I would rate as moderate that leads you to the tide pools which I enjoyed a quick beautiful swim. But be very careful.
    This trail overall is family and pet friendly.
