Located near the Kalaupapa Overlook. Short hike from the parking lot. Historic place with a history about the rock formations in the area.

Lots of parking. Short walk into the ironwood forest. Read the plaques dedicated to the rock. It tells the whole story. Also, walk to the edge of the cliff and check out Kaulapapa.

Not worth the walk. If you must go, it is fun to sit astride the Rock and take some photos. There is a sign near the rock describing the legend.

It's an uphill but short hike through a scenic forest. You gotta see it at least once. Visit it from the same parking lot opposite of the Kalaupapa lookout.

If you’re going to see the Kalaupapa lookout make sure to include this. To get to the Phallic rock there’s a short easy hike.

Hard to believe that this is a natural formation. The hike to it is very easy. If you have gone to the Kalaupapa overlook, then you will see the sign directing you to the trail that takes you to the rock.
