My husband and I stopped to check out the ditch and walk the suspension bridge. It was a fun experience and such a quick stop it is worth the drive off the main road. History of the Menehune is interesting as well.

This needs more information to locate. No signs indicating a historical land mark from the main highway. We couldn’t find it using two different app maps and searching by all the names, Menehune ditch, Kiki a Ola and Peekauai ditch. Drove up and down Menehune...More

Another legendary place to visit! It's off the beaten track, not much parking but it can be had. The legendary stories of the 'Menehunes' are quite something to look into... their accomplishments rival those of the early Egyptians, Aztecs and others, especially when one looks...More

We drove to this while using our Shaka Guide driving tour app. It was interesting to see. There is a swinging bridge there but it was raining so we didn't spend much time out of the car.

An interesting stop, but really not that great. The drive is through what appears to be a lower income area, and there is really hardly any parking. There is a historical marker with some interesting info, a swinging bridge like the one in Hanapepe and...More
