1. Ala Mauka Makai Marker
Inscription. This trail cuts across Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park, passing sites that represent many of the values for which this park was created, such as a malama ka aina, caring for the land. This was a place where Hawaiian families lived, values and traditions were promoted, and the importance of family and caring for one another were taught. As you walk to the shore keep your senses alert for things to see, feel, and smell, and keep your mind open to the spirit of those who lived here long ago.

(Inscription under the photos at the top right)
Remnants of the more recent past, like this animal pen wall, and more distant past, like a temple platform, are both found along this trail. (Second Photo) On Ala Mauk Makai you will pass areas where park managers are restoring native plants like this naio (Myoporum sandwicense).
