find mile marker 15 which is right at the Olowalu General Store and Leoda's Kitchen. Drive to the left of the store. Watch for the water tower and gate and continue on the dirt road. It's probably a roughly 1/2 mile (or less) walk ......More

As everyone says, these are not the easiest thing to find but it's a worthwhile detour if you have 30 minutes or so. As others have said, you can't get very close to the rocks, but you can get close enough to see the figures...More

We were in the area and thought we'd stop by, this was very hard to find. We ran into a local back there (lucky for us) that pointed us in the right direction. You can't get close and they are way up high (if you...More

This was a wonderful stop for us on this dirt road that seems to go nowhere. I have an old friend on Maui and he brought my family to see these petroglyphs and give us some of the history. Was a wonderful stop and not...More

This is not a spectacular outing but it is an interesting one for anyone interested in Hawaiian culture pre-contact. A short walk up a dirt track behind Leoda’s Pie Ship and the General store, you will find a rock with petroglyphs that apparently date back...More

After having lunch at Leoda’s, we visited the petroglyphs. Yes, high up a wall—we brought binoculars—but definitely worth a visit. Here are my directions: from Leoda’s, drive just past the general store and turn right. Make a quick left, then a quick right at the...More

Awesome petroglyphs! Much more to see than just one rock! It is a sacred place. It is not well known. It will not be found with GPS. Download directions before you go.

I am a petroglyph fan, but these were a little disappointing. Hard to find--took us 3 drives back in there; just ask the people at Leoda's or the General Store to save yourself. To avoid the tornup road, could use Liawe Road just next to...More

Like others have said it is difficult to find. There are two ways to get there but all ways will eventually lead to a small dirt road. There is a sign but it's behind some bushes, so you wont see it until you're literally 10...More
