  • Translated as the "long hill", this archeological site is considered sacred to many in Hawaii. The earliest recorded writing about these carvings was in the early 1800s by a missionary.  more »

  • Nice short hike with cool petroglyphs. Great morning hike ☺
  • Great hike to see a historical gem. Wear sunscreen as it is hot and there is no shade. Also wear sturdy hiking shoes, flip flops aren't ideal.
  • Wonderful place to Hike and enjoy cliffs and lava fields.
  • Its a nice hike. Great for people who love history
  • This is something cool to see if you're going down to the bottom of the volcano. However, be forewarned that it's a 3/4 mile hike on uneven terrain to get there and the entire walk on the (nice) boardwalk will take no more than 5 - 10 minutes with pictures. Definitely wear your sunscreen as well.
