Petroglyph Tour

February 11 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:30 am on Tuesday, repeating indefinitely

Free

Learn about the free guided petroglyph tours available weekly at Kings' Shops.

Kii pohaku (petroglyphs, literally “rock pictures”) may be the closest thing to a written language that Hawaiians used, and some are thought to be astronomical symbols, road signs or markers of historic events. Join expert Michaela Larson for a moderate 1-hour walk back through Hawaii’s fascinating history, and see for yourself. Sunblock, hat and covered walking shoes recommended as the trail is uneven and rough in places.

If you visit the petroglyphs on your own, please respect this culturally sensitive area. Stay on the trail and do not approach the petroglyphs for photos or rubbings without permission of Waikoloa Security. These are fragile carvings, possibly thousands of years old, easily subject to damage and erosion. The best way to capture a petroglyph is with a photo in the late afternoon, when the shadows are long.

Location: Meet lakeside next to Island Fish and Chips at 9:30 a.m. Lava trails are uneven and rough. Wearing closed-toe walking shoes, sunscreen and hats are highly recommended. Don’t forget a camera and water.
