Ascent Trip Report

Parked at main parking lot. Talked tot rangers and heard great presentation on what made this the most significant historic site in all of Hawaii. learned about how the temple helped unify the warring chieftoms. Walked down to the ocean and touched water to make my TH. Explored park and walked up to the temple by way of paved park trails staying below the temple as instructed by the signage as not to disrespect the sacred lands. Walked up paved entrance road since many park trails were closed, to the entrance and a short walk down highway shoulder to touch the theoretical HP and get some exercise with beautiful views of Pacific Ocean. Park fairly interesting.
