Acid War Zone Trail to Lighthouse

0.8 Miles
Wailuku, Hawaii


Dogs (leashed)

This section of the Acid War Zone Trail in Wailuku, Maui starts at the northern most trailhead and passed through eroded coastal fields before reaching a lighthouse atop a cliff edge. This is an easy 0.8 mile out-and-back hike to the lighthouse, but you can extend the hike by an additional 1 mile or more by following the trail down towards the water and south towards the Nakalele Blowhole.

From the lighthouse, you can look down upon Maui's battered cliffsides and to the north you get views of Kahakuloa Head - the two massive rocks jutting up from the northern shore.

Wildflowers can be found along the trail due to the frequent rain that hits Maui's northern coast. Don't be surprised if it rains on you a couple of times during the hike.
