  • We saw the old road, but we didn’t see any signs saying what it was, so we didn’t know what we were walking on until days later when we saw the signs. Once I realized what everything was it was...

  • Beautiful walk! Lots of petroglyphs that have been carved into the rocks. Info signs provide details on the lives and lifestyles of the native Hawaiians who made these carvings. Make sure to bring proper footwear for walking over uneven rocks and also bring some water. There are no benches, very little shade and those rocks get HOT! Still, worth it!
  • Cool little place right between a golf course! Worth the walk down there and make sure to have good shoes and water.
