One of the largest heiaus in all of Hawaii, this place is heavy, there is a lot of energy there that should be respected. Stay off the rocks, plenty of great views, but respect the energy. There was a lot of death there in the old days.

It's a fenced dirt road with a little... More

Easily football field sized or bigger, and layered so much is unseen beneath the vegetation.
