The man, believed to be in the military and stationed here, climbed to an area outside the actual trail above the  lighthouse on Saturday afternoon, then lost his footing and fell, according to Honolulu Fire Department spokesman Capt. James Todd.

The man was taken to a local hospital in critical condition and died early this morning.
