This is one of those hidden gems for activities. Its a little out of the way, but definitely worth the trip. There is paid parking at the park, but it was full when we arrived. However, easily found a parking spot on the side of...More

We were headed from Kaanapali to the airport, and as other reviews have noted, this was a great quick stop. The park is lovely, and the walk is gentle.

It's pretty, yes. There are some gardens down by the river and you climb .2 miles to view the needle. But you can literally do this park in 15 minutes. There was not much to see or explore. The highlight might have been watching the...More

If you have a little extra time before taking off, or after arriving, this is a nice spot. There's some nice geology, dipping into a stream, and views. Not too much walking - some stairs.

Beautiful and a must see. Be prepared to park along the road due to all the visitors to the area. A short hike, but worth it in order to get good pictures of the "needle".

Add to you list to take a drive out to Iao to see another side of the island - the views are incredible. Take a swimsuit (if so desired) or put your feet in the water.

This is a nice stop that only takes about an hour or so to visit, it is an easy walk with stairs to the top of the viewing area. There are beautiful views and a few different things to see here.

$5 for non-residents. Small parking lot, but we lucked out and got a spot right as we paid. To get to the monument, there’s a series of stairs (we counted, but I forgot – 333? Not as many as Diamond Head!) Very green, pretty stream....More
