You have to book this through Damien Tours to do this hike. $80 gets you the permit to hike and includes the tour through Kalawao County (the preserved colony).

Really beautiful coastal hike through a series of switchbacks along the northern coast of Molokai. The trail ends at a secluded beach giving you a great perspective of Molokai's massive sea cliffs (largest in the world!) and the northern coast. Has a similar feel to some of the Kalalau Trail in Kauai. Definitely worth the entry fee in my opinion!

The mule tour is fantastic! We could not have managed that hike on our own. The views are breathtaking.

Awesome day hiking to the historical Kalaupapa and visiting the beautiful homeland of 9 remaining patients formerly affected by Hansen's disease.
