At North Kohala, the state park around the ancient city of Lapakahi offers a fine self-guided walk. At the parking lot, pick up a brochure from the box outlining the self-guided walk. The trailhead is marked by a "Start Here" sign. Follow the arrow to the left and enjoy. Along the trail, there are 20 marked, numbered sites described in the brochure (apparently, they ran out of space to describe sites #21 and #22... :)

The park is on Highway 270, about 15 minutes north of the junction with Highway 19.
