  • This is actually not the radar site but the site of the memorial and a great view of the radar site that used to be on a hilltop. There is however detailed info of the importance of the site and timeline on events unfolding the morning of 12/7/1941.

You have to hike down towards a service entrance for the hotel, find the hidden direction signs, walk past the smoking area (which looks like homeless people live there), and find the last part of the trail to get there.
