Customers meet at the café at least 15 minutes before their scheduled time and should wear athletic shoes and proper sun protection. Once equipped with a bottle of water, hiking stick, and any necessary rain gear, hikers embark on their trek. The 2- to 3-hour Makapu’u Lighthouse hike—available seven days a week at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m.—takes an easy-to-intermediate path, and the Kuliouou Ridge trail—available Monday–Friday at 8 a.m.—offers a 3.5- to 4.5-hour intermediate route. The day trip—available Monday–Thursday at 8 a.m.—begins with a scenic drive to a macadamia-nut farm, followed by a hike on the Hau’ula Loop Trail. Lunch at a Kahuku Shrimp Truck, a botanical tour through Waimea Valley and Waimea Falls, and a visit to Haleiwa Town complete the experience before guests return to Waikiki.<p>
Hiking Hawaii Cafe
At Hiking Hawaii Cafe, good friends and avid hikers Crystal Evans and Fabio Vilela prepare globally inspired food packed with nutrition. They bake their own granola in-house and infuse bowls of açaí, berries, honey, and banana with guarana, giving diners enough energy to recharge batteries with their fingertips. Artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes accent a couscous salad, and the flavors of prosciutto, fig, arugula, and brie meld in the spanish panini. Patrons also can sip coffee and smoothies while surfing the Internet. When Crystal and Fabio aren't in the café, they lead groups on hiking excursions to find cliffside views of the ocean or stories-high waterfalls.
