This was the most amazing hike I've ever been on. You can hear and see many different kinds of birds along the way and the plant life changes significantly depending on your elevation. Best of all, the views are absolutely breathtaking. It's not too bad in terms of a challenge but I imagine it's quite treacherous if it's been raining, with all of the clay. It's mostly shaded and had a pleasant breeze.

This is a sacred Hawaiian Heiau, so please give it the respect it deserves. It's beautiful serene place where you can hike, camp, and picnic.

Loving this place, Calm, relaxing park with amazing bird sounds; hens, roosters running about. Best prepare with bug repellent. Nice spot for a quick drive into nature to get away from the city life also great picnic area. Love the way it drizzels and the sun is still out. Truly a nice piece of paradise. Haven't hiked yet but I am sure it won't be disappointing. Enjoy. Please ask permission to the spirits to enter the Heiau if u are going to go in . Be respectful as it is their home and don't touch anything. Also don't go to the far right back, as it is a even more sacred spot. Then when u come out give thanks for going in. This is a great spot for healing energy. Mahalo.

I didn't like on how people were walking on the hawaiian historical site. In old Hawaii people would be killed for that. So if the parks could put a huge huge sign saying don't climb on it that would be great
