Oceanside jeep and walking trail at westernmost tip of O'ahu encompassing Albatross breeding area.

Features Birding · Views

Description

Start at the large parking lot at the end of highway 930 as the paved road turns into a jeep road. Continue on the undulating, pothole pocked road until you reach a fenced area. Go through the sliding steel doors into the Natural Area Reserve. Be advised that dogs are not allowed on this side of the gated area. The area is set aside to protect nesting Albatross which can easily be seen just beside the trail, as well as Shearwaters and monk seals. Do not venture off the trail and cause undue stress to the wildlife. Note that you can skirt the fence but the trail will soon turn into a huge washed out drop and be impassable.

As you reach the point, the trail continues down the west side of the island. Continue through the steel sliding doors and back onto a jeep road. Follow the road until it turns into pavement once again.

Flora & Fauna

Albatross nest along the trail, and visitors can see Sheatwarters, Frigates, and Monk Seals

This trail is also great for mtn. biking. Very scenic. Good for whales in the winter, too. I've also seen spinner dolphins in the Yokohama Bay side. One of my favorites in Hawaii. It is three miles out to the point and another two if you go down to yokohama bay. 10 miles RT to YB and back. Feb 11, 2017
