A Trip To This Little Known Ancient Ruin In Hawaii Is Truly One In A Million

There is something strangely beautiful about man-made structures being taken back by the land — and Hawaii definitely has its fair share of abandoned places, artifacts, and ancient ruins. When people move on, the remains are often abandoned amid the landscape, and some of these places have been left to battle with nature for so long that they have become ruins that will almost certainly transport you to a bygone era of Hawaiian history. Slowly crumbling to the ground, that is the case with Lapakahi Village.

The trail is found within the Lapakahi State Historical Park on the northern Kohala Coast of Hawaii Island off of HI-270. The park is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and you can learn more by visiting the Hawaii State Parks website.
