If you are going to see the needle it’s very accessible and a beautiful area indeed. You should probably do some research and learning if you want to get more out of it. If you are going for the hiking, know that the trails are...More

I’d suggest you research the history and folk lore before you go in order to actually enjoy what it is you are seeing. The entire walk up and back takes less then 20 minutes. The grounds are pretty and there is a pond area to...More

We went here because it was convenient to where we were staying in Wailuku. The paths are all paved, some of the views are lovely but not dramatic. We probably spent no more than an hour there.

The valley is very pretty but most know for the Iao Needle that juts up from no where, much like Chimney Rock. It is a tropical rainforest so if you’re there on a sunny day, it’s rare. From the parking lot it’s a short walk...More

This was one of the highlights of my trip to Maui. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking and so easy to get to, just a 5 min walk from the carpark. Parking costs $5

Spent more time in the car than actually there. Very short "hike" and a little bouldering in the stream was the extent of the park

This was a great destination in Maui. Entrance fee for non residents was $5 per car. The parking lot was right after the entrance booth. Follow the paved paths either up to the viewing area or down to gardens and a stream outlook. The paved...More
