It was a bumpy ride with no other vehicles in sight. The signage was minimal and at times, we were not sure if we were on the right road.

You have to rent a Jeep to go to this place. It's a muddy road to the garden with a lot of bumps. It was more like an adventure, the garden it self it's not all that but it's interesting how the rocks are just laying around like that. if you are in the area definitely a must.

If you really want a thrill, go out there at night during a full moon. Packed with Spirits ready to play.

If you are on Lanai this is something you really should take the time to do. Its a quick drive through sort of thing. It does feel other-worldly and is a cool backdrop for photographs.
