If you don't have someone from the military with you, you really don't understand what you're looking at. Nice scenery around the station though.

Off the beaten path, and not well-marked, is the WWII radar station that was disguised as a farmhouse and barn. There is only a small turnout and a historical marker to be seen from the road. But a short (2-minute) hike down a gravel trail...More

It is a little off the beaten path, but a perfect place for military history buffs. It is down a hill from the road so it is not good for those with mobility issues, definitely not ADA compliant. It has great photo ops considering the...More

Looks liek a farm stashed on the side of the hill. I have never walked down to it on the trail but always stop to show it to travelers.

We followed the advice from the visitors center and stopped and walked down to see these WW II radar sites. It was nice to see a part of history.

Radar station built after attack on Pearl Harbor to monitor coastal activity, disguised as a farmhouse to avoid detection from sea or air. There is a small dirt path leading down hill to the radar station where you can walk around the building.

I can't imagine that this would be interesting to anyone unless they had family that manned the station during the war. It's a couple of abandoned buildings with nothing inside to indicate what they were, or any information boards with a story or pictures of...More
