Interesting history. Took my sisters retired guide dog on a leash and was told by the ranger after we hiked that no animals are allowed in the park. Noticed on your app that it says dogs are allowed on leash. You might want to update that. Ranger was unfriendly. No aloha here.

also snorkeling! great visibility in the water in that area.

Very easy trail with different points of historical interest. There’s a rocky coastline but the water was extremely clear. Would be a great place to snorkel

History and a beautiful walk; great little trail.

This place is wonderful! An ancient (600 year old) Hawaiian village was here and the remains of the dwellings and other artifacts from their lives. Super easy hike with magnificent view of the ocean and never very many people here. It's hot with little shade, so bring some water and appropriate shoes because it's hard to walk on the a'a lava in flip flops.

This is a great little hike for the kids to take a step back into Hawaiian history. I will be going again soon and take a bit longer to explore the surrounding area.

Beautiful trail, clearly defined and a fairly easy hike. Great views of the white lava rocks lining the beach as well as visible ruins of the old historical Hawaiian native village (complete with still standing grass huts "PILI"). A nice dry setting for the most part with lots of wildlife in and around the water, and plenty of scenic views!

Gorgeous dry climate setting on the Kohala coast, a historically noteworthy ancient Hawaiian village site, with only ruins now remaining. A charming replicated PILI (a Hawaiian native grass) hut at the trail head where you can shoot some fun pictures of youselves with it and the beautiful coast view in the background. Hot, dry and sunny, so have your hats, sunscreen and lots of water ready!
