Environmental Precautions


Endangered Nēnē (Hawaiian geese) frequent this area.

The Nene (Branta sandvicensis), also known as Nēnē and Hawaiian goose, is a species of bird endemic to the Hawaiian Islands.

The official bird of the state of Hawaiʻi, the Nene is exclusively found in the wild on the islands of `Oahu, Maui, Kaua`i, Moloka`i, and Hawai`i.

Please use caution when parking. Don't feed the Nēnē or don’t pick the 'Ōhelo berries because the Nene feed on them. Mahalo!




Leave rocks in their rightful place.

Park staff may use ahu (stacked rocks) to mark some trails and keep visitors safe. Please do not create new ones. The stacking of rocks can be culturally offensive, disorienting to hikers, and potentially against the law.

Do not remove lava rocks from the park.
