First of all, use the directions found in the previous reviews and take water (we went in November and it was still hot and humid) and a camera. I think these petroglyphs, hidden in the woods, must be one of the best kept secrets on the Big Island. We only saw one other couple there on the day we visited them. My husband and I tried to use our imagination to figure out what these numerous petroglyphs meant and reflected on the people who carved/chiselled them into the rock hundreds of years ago. The main viewing area has a wall of inumerable and varied petroglyphs, but there are others along the little trails in the area. This is one of the richest petroglyph areas my husband and I have viewed. These far outdo the petroglyphs at VNP. Remember to stay on the trail(s), don't touch or make rubbings, and respect what I am sure is considered a sacred area to the native Hawaiians.
