Sokehs Rock, Palikir

#2 of 6 in Parks in Pohnpei
Nature / Park · Geologic Formation
A rock formation peering over its namesake peninsula, Sokehs Rock remains one of Micronesia's landmark geographic features and serves as a major challenge for adventurous hikers. Allegedly created by a magician ages ago, the rock offers sweeping views of a lagoon and northern islands. As you navigate your way up a well-defined trail, look for abandoned buildings and old cannons dating back to World War II. Persistent bird watchers often report spotting the short-eared owl, a shy and threatened species. Don proper shoes for this demanding hike, and bring some bug repellent. Make your Palikir itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • Nice short hike to the radio tower on the Soekhs ridge to see Japanese WWII anti aircraft guns. Views of the bay and airport are amazing. Great day hike.  more »
  • It's worth the hike up (you can either take a taxi to get you to the end of the paved road or walk, then walk the rest of the way) - very peaceful and breathtaking views  more »
