Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge and Kilauea Lighthouse Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge and the historic Kilauea Lighthouse are located at the northernmost point in Kauai as well as the major Hawaiian Islands. This short, self-guided path on the 160-acre refuge follows the perimeter of the peninsula 200 feet above the sea. The point has breath-taking views of chiseled coastal cliffs, the crashing surf and a picturesque lighthouse built in 1913 perched on the bluff.
The trail overlooks the island of Mokuaeae, a sanctuary for thousands of nesting and migratory birds, including Laysan albatross, wedge-tailed shearwaters and red-footed boobies. Kilauea Point also offers an opportunity to observe seals, dolphins, sea turtles and seasonal humpback whales from December through April. Park open Monday–Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m."
