This area is often missed because the tourists this place attracts is more concerned with golf, playing in the pool, frolicking on the beach, and going to Roy's (a great restaurant) for dinner than walking over lava fields looking at petrographs. If you plan your morning exercise you can walk and explore at the same time.

No fee. This archeological site is pretty good. Apparently the Mauni Lani Resort preserved it during the contruction of the resort complex. This site has bathrooms at the shaded parking area, a shower, and a great asphalt trail that winds through the park in a westerly direction toward the beach. The trail takes about 15 minutes and along the way... More

This is do-able from Fairmont Orchid or driving from anywhere. The preserved fish ponds are interesting. Not sure I'd drive in for petroglyphs alone though. The petroglyphs at the King's Court in Waikola are more plentiful and also a pleasant walk.

I love walking through here every time I come stay on the Big Island. The grounds are interesting. The water pools have some interesting fish to see. Beautiful trees, all oceanfront.

Check it out at sunset as the heat and sun will affect what you can see. Should take about an hour to complete the walk. The walk really requires sneakers or teva like shows at a minimum - no sandals. All ages can see it. Its a nice walk thru the woods. I would not recommend it after a rainfall.... More

The Historic Park in the Mauna Lani Resort has preserved one of the largest petroglyph fields in Hawaii--the Puako field--in a serene and natural setting. Plan on at least an hour to walk the trail and appreciate the petroglyphs. To get to the Historic Park and viewable portion of the Puako petroglyph fields, go about 30 miles north of the... More
