Olowalu Petroglyphs

Hawaii > Maui > Lahaina
Length1.2 mi
Elev. Gain50 ft
Difficulty1 / 5
Rating7 / 10
The Olowalu Petroglyphs are a few of the most accessible on the island of Maui. They are made up of geometric designs and human figures, and their meanings are still unknown.

To begin the hike, find the open gate and sign that reads Olowalu Petroglyphs. The path is straight and level, ignore the side paths. You'll cross an irrigation ditch and should be able to spot the metal railing on the hillside on your right. Make your way up to where it levels and find the petroglyphs to the left.
