MacKenzie State Recreation Area
MacKenzie State Recreation Area Review
This coastal park, on rocky shoreline cliffs in a breezy, cool ironwood grove, has a pavilion, picnic tables, restrooms, and a tent-camping area, but no drinking water. The park is significant for the restored section of the old King's Highway trail system, which circled the coast in the era before Hawaii was discovered by the Western world. In those days, regional chiefs used the trails to connect get between coastal villages, collect taxes, and maintain control over people. Views take in the rugged coast, rocky beach, and coastal dry forest.
