Memorial/End of Road
Site of the last lava flow on Maui (1790's).
For a delightful short (0.5 mile one-way) and shady hike,
take the ancient King's Highway which begins across the lava
flow. This magical trail goes along spectacular shoreline,
secluded coves and many ancient sites of once thriving Hawaiian
communities. Snorkeling/scuba diving for experts.
- Continue 1.7 miles on Makena Alanui
Road through lava fields to road's end at the sea
Note: please respect
the native Hawaiian archaeological sites. Stay on the trail.
Do not remove the stones or other natural materials. Help
preserve these priceless sites for future generations by leaving
them as you find them.
Caution: trail is rocky, wear hiking shoes. After one-half
mile, trail is no longer shady and is often hot. Water entries
and exits are hazardous-rugged coast.
