This Hidden Trail In Hawaii Leads To A Magnificent Archaeological Treasure

The Hawaiian Islands are steeped in history, from the first Europeans visiting the islands in 1778 and the establishment of the Kingdom of Hawaii in 1795 to Hawaii’s admittance to the United States of America in 1959. But Hawaii’s history goes back much further than that, as evidenced by this petroglyph field found off a hiking trail on the northern coast of Hawaii Island. These are the Puako Petroglyphs, a magnificent archaeological treasure you’ll only find in Hawaii.

The Puako Petroglyph Archaeological District is located at North Kaniku Drive in Waimea, and is open daily from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Have you visited this incredible site before? What about these other historic Hawaii hikes?
