Trail, Makapuʻu, Oʻahu. Narrow, dangerous trail used by ulua fishermen that begins at Makapuʻu Lookout on Kalanianaʻole Highway and leads to the north side of Makapuʻu Point. In a February 1970 article in Salt Water Sportsman magazine, veteran fishing writer and television personality Bruce Carter identified Hawaiʻi's ulua fishermen as "mountain goats" for their ability to reach seemingly inaccessible rocky ledges at the base of sea cliffs. His description was used to name this trail.
