The trail head branches both left and right - you should take right, towards the Heiau at the hilltop. Stop at the visitor's centre to read about the interesting history behind the heiau. The asphalt trail leads you to the base of the temple.
Almost, 200 feet below, you will find the Mailekini Heiau, which was transformed into a fort later by King Kamehameha. There is yet another heiau, called the Hele o Kepuni, which lies underwater and in ruins. It was dedicated to sharks, which were often offered human flesh.
At the bottom of the hill, the trail loops back to the starting point. You should leave the asphalt path and follow the dirt road, which will bring you to the site of the ancient royal compound, Pelekane.
From Pelekane, follow an unpaved service road till you reach a 'T' and take a right hike uphill. As you approach the Highway, cross it and take a left and walk about 600 feet and you will find a well-worn trail to the right leading to the John Young's Homestead. After completing your trail, retrace your path to the asphalt trail and follow the loop.
