There is a short looped trail down to the caves from the State Park parking lot . The caves are actually a collapsed lava tube and are very damp, mossy and extremely lush. They contain two pools both of which are red in color, due to the numerous shrimp that frequent their bottoms. Read about the legends of these pools on the sign at the entrance or check in with Hana Picnic Co. for details of this and other legends along the Road to Hana.
