Not so much a hike as walking from very interesting display to extremely interesting display. The landscape was amazing and the history was deep. Worth the time.

Very easy, short walk. I loved learning about all the Hawaiian history and seeing the artifacts at this national historical park! Beautiful views!

Nice hike but pathway is mainly lava rocks!! Best to have hiking shoes and not flip flops. Great view of the ocean and the lava formations!

Great walk around park. Then head out on the longer trail to see more. Even a restroom a mile out there !! A few geocaches around before park and great snorkeling at two steps

Easy, short trail with a lot of different things to see. Interesting to learn about the belief system and the place of refuge.
