Agree completely with the review below. Great site if you are looking for some of Hawaii's history. Note the directions carefully - head towards the Fairmont Orchid and park in the lot by the beach. Don't get confused with the other petroglyphs in the area that can be seen in Waikoloa Beach development (for those ones, park in the Kings Shops parking lot by the gas station and then cross the street) - the Waikoloa ones are in the middle of the resort/golf course, so the setting put us off a little although the glyphs there are amazing as well. The Puako glyphs by the Orchid are in a much more natural setting. What I do find however with many Hawaiian historical sites and hikes is that there is very little in the way of interpretative information or directions, so is best to have a good guide book or reference material with you to add to the background of what you are seeing. We found that Frommer's "Best Hiking Trips in Hawaii" was a good guide for this site and many others we visited.
