Like the hike to Ka’ena Point from the south, this is an easy walk near a beautiful shoreline with tide pools to explore and endangered species of Hawaiian flowers to examine along the way. From December to May you are almost guaranteed sightings of nesting albatross and migrating humpback whales. You can sometimes spot rare Hawaiian monk seals on the rocks. This northern approach to the point is different from the southern one in that off-road vehicles can make it as far as the boundary of the protected area and have left a multitude of scars on the land. The Ka’ena Point Natural Area Reserve at the point is still unspoiled and well worth the trip.
