Alakaha Ramp bench

At the top of the Alakaha Ramp, on the 1871 Trail from Pu’uhonua o Hōnaunau National Historical Park to Ho’okena, is this little weathered bench. It offers shade and a lovely view to the north, the point of land being the park.

    • Yes. The lava flows in this part of the island are all from Mauna Loa. In general, the more lava visible, the more recent the flow. The amount of rainfall is a big factor too, in how quickly plants regrow.
