'Ano 'ai ke aloha ia 'oukou no ke kipa 'ana am i Pu'uloa. Hele mai a 'ike me ke aloha a me ka mahalo.
With aloha, we welcome you to Pu'uloa - a place we honor and cherish. Please stay on the marked trail and boardwalk, for once this site and its petroglyphs are harmed, the stories they cradle will be lost forever — Nā Kūpuna, Our Hawaiian Elders.

Pu'uloa (Long Hill) is home to a unique and spiritual collection of petroglyphs. These intricate rock carvings are a record of the history and culture of the native Hawaiian people who have used this site for centuries in Hawai'i, a testament to its cultural and scientific significance.
For many native Hawaiian 'ohana (families) Pu'uloa is a revered scared site. These families continue their unique traditions and ceremonial practices here, in hope of blessing their children with a long life. Their journeys here have become essential to continuing these rich cultural traditions - now the legacy of Pu'uloa.
Prepare to walk on ke ala kahiko (The path of the old ones) - a 1.4 mile (2.3 km) round-trip journey to one of Hawai'i's revered cultural landmarks.
The trail to Pu'uloa has felt many footprints in its lifetime - from the ali'i (chief), to the kanaka maoli (native resident), to the malihini (guest). The petroglyphs you will see have been
carved into the thin, fragile crust of this 400-700 year-old lava flow.
