Puako Petroglyph Park, Waimea Reviews

  • Excellent place to walk around and see authentic artifacts. We also saw numerous Yellow Tangs and a young turtle swimming in the protected bay there. The park staff are friendly and knowledgeable.

  • The trailhead was not well marked, so we spent time walking along the shore without finding anything. The trail starts at the opposite end of the parking lot from the shore, and there is a sign. It is a fairly easy hike and the first 2/3 are well-shaded in the trees. You do have to traverse uneven ground with lots of tree roots and rocks, so those with mobility issues need to take great care, or not go. The final destination is quite fascinating, although the actual significance of each or all of the petroglyphs remains unknown.

  • A short walk on uneven trails, I managed it in my flip flops. There are some close to the parking lot if you just want to stop and look or take the .7 mile trek to the farther ones. A cool piece of Hawaiian history

  • The first, very short part of the trail is wheelchair accessible and shows organized, reassembled petroglyphs all in a circle. For a more authentic experience, continue the trail to an area with huge slabs and many petroglyphs. There are signs explaining what we know, and mostly starting that we don't know much about these. Give free rein to your imagination and to your deductive skills.

  • The few stones you can see that are right next to the parking lot was okay but nothing special.. The beach however is a pretty place although you can't swim there! I would say don't go out of your way to see it, But if it's on your way stop by and look at it
