I was told a story about the winds that blow over these steep mountains when I was only 15 years old. Supposedly, King Kamehameha threw his enemies down this cliff, and now any man or woman who attempts to take their own life down this cliff by jumping will be thrown back onto the sidewalk and not permitted to die there. I have personally tried just simply jumping up and down on the sidewalk, and on a very windy day, I was literally blown a few inches back each time.
There is an awesome view from here of the windward side of the Island and it provides great photo opportunities so come prepared with a camera and film. There are views of The Chinaman's Hat which is small island shaped just like a Chinaman's hat, Kanoehe, Waimanalo, and many of the smaller windward towns and cities. The wonderful thing about this activity is that this is completely free which is pretty rare in Hawaii, so I would definitely suggest this to anyone visiting, as you can simply make a stop while traveling from the Leeward side to the windward side of the Island.
