We've been down the little road to Upolo Airport many times to see the wind turbines but never made that left hand turn to go to Mo'okini Heiau. As other reviewers have said, the dirt road is fine if it's dry, otherwise after some rain, it will be a mud pit in some sections. We drove our 2WD vehicle just in front of the last house (it's a nice house with a free fruit stand outside) and walked the rest of the way in. We were surprised about the scale of the heiau - it's huge. Amazing too, if you think about the thousands of people who hand passed all the stones from 14 miles away. We walked a bit further on to see the Kamehameha birthplace. Equally amazing. Quite moving to stand there. It is a very windy place and you can get some good shots of waves crashing on the rocks. Well worth the walk.
