Pu'u Kanehoalani

Mo`okapu o Häloa (Sacred section of Häloa), a mountainous ridge which branches off the Ko`olau mountain range and juts out to the east. Known to the ancient Hawaiians as Palikü (erect cliff), Kualoa is perfectly flat between the ocean and Lae o ka`oi`o, the mountainous formation that looks like a “forehead” and is the eastern-most tip of Mo`okapu o Häloa. (The name Palikü was changed to Kualoa by Mrs. Julie Judd Swanzy sometime around 1880.) SOURCE:malainaaina.org
