The Experience

The Ala Kahakai National Historic Trails have been connected through generations of use to form a single continuous route. On Mauna Lani to Honoka'ope Bay hike, black sand, beautiful cliffs, and crystal clear waters make 49 Black Sand Beach one of the most unique coastal locations on the Big Island. When you choose the Mauna Lani to Puako Petroglyph Field hike, you'll encounter one of the most extensive petroglyph fields in Hawaii. The 223-acre Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve boasts more than 3,000 ancient petroglyphs. Explore lava rock carvings etched into stone, dating back to 1200 AD.
