Guided Site Tour

An hour long, guided walking tour of the interpretive site is provided to visitors on a daily basis during Park hours. Groups may range in size from 5 to 25. Tours start at the kauhale where Participants are given an overview of the geological history of the area, ancient legends and stories that tie into the region and other historical events that occurred in and around the Park (i.e., Navy occupation, aircraft crash site, etc.).

Park staff guide the Participants through the Park and offer personal interpretations of the various physical structures and remnants based on their own knowledge and familiarity with the original cultural and archeological review developed by Dave Tuggle and Rubellite Johnson (which was included in the final Environmental Assessment for the Park).
