Kaena Point

This hike takes you on a scenic adventure to Oahu's most northwestern point.

This hike leads to the most northwestern point of Oahu. 

Although Kaena literally means "the heat," the point is said to be named after the brother or cousin of the volcano goddess Pele.

The trail takes hikers along dramatic cliffs that overlook monstrous waves. 

The trail ends at the Kaena Point Natural Area Reserve, home to nesting moli, or Laysan albatross. 

Look for sun bathing monk seals, ilioholoikauaua, and watch the Pacific Ocean wash and crash around the tip of Oahu.
