Hawaii’s Division of Forestry & Wildlife issues advance permits for the hiking and mountain-biking trail system surrounding Kaʻena Point’s satellite tracking station. From a dirt parking lot, the dusty 2.5-mile one-way Kuaokala Trail climbs a high ridge into Mokuleʻia Forest Reserve. On a clear day you can see Mt Kaʻala (4025ft), Oʻahu’s highest peak.

Check in with your hiking permit at the station guardhouse opposite Yokohama Bay. Without a permit, the Kuaokala Trail can still be accessed via the Kealia Trail, starting from the North Shore’s Dillingham Airfield.
