Puu Loa Petroglyphs

Petroglyphs are known as kii pohaku, lava rock carvings made by Native Hawaiians. The largest field in Hawaii is located in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, about .7 miles off the Chain of Craters Road. There you’ll see more than 23,000 images, most made prior to western contact. Please help us protect these sacred artifacts by not walking or touching the carvings.
