Hard to believe that this is a natural formation. The hike to it is very easy. If you have gone to the Kalaupapa overlook, then you will see the sign directing you to the trail that takes you to the rock.

A cool get away from the beach. These rocks are near an overlook about 1500 feet above the ocean. Spectacular view. Sometimes docked in with fog but just wait!

Near the overlook parking lot head left up a trail for 250yds and you will find one of the Hawaiian cultural locations. Easy hike on an easy trail. Worth the trip. Its a Hawaiian religious site with an interesting legend surrounding the rock formations.

It is just a short hike from the parking lot. Read the stories and the history about it before you go... It's NOT just a rock, haha.

If you are already at the Kalaupapa Overlook you might as well take the short hike to see Phallic Rock. If you are Hawaiian, you probably have cultural reasons to want to make a visit. If you aren't Hawaiian or already at the overlook it...More

This was an easy little hike and the legend behind Phallic Rock is important to the Hawaiian people! There were offerings on and around the Rock and we loved seeing a bit of history. Cool place to see!

Not a "hard" walk from the same parking lot as the Kalaupapa Overlook. The "stiff" breeze kept it comfortable. Rather amusing to see how many people have no clue what phallic means. Maybe if they renamed it Viagra rock . . .

It's worth the short walk to see this interesting rock formation. I'm not sure of the Hawaiian significance of this rock but I believe it has some history. It's unfortunate about all the modern graffiti around it though.

This is a very easy walk in a beautiful location. Very relaxing and a good one to add to the Kalaupapa Overlook.
