A paved 0.6 mile walk provides a scenic viewpoint of Kuka‘emoku ('Iao Needle), an erosional feature which abruptly rises 1200 feet from the valley floor. Learn about the plants brought by the Hawaiians who settled in ‘Iao Valley by taking a short walk through a botanical garden.
Take a walk through the garden, up to view the "Needle". Deep your toes in Iao stream on hot days, just be sure to heed all park safety signs.
Walk across bridge and past steps down to the left. Bear right and go down the back steps. After all the steps, the sidewalk flattens out. An “Area Closed” sign marks the trail Stay right at all forks
Beautiful! And LOVE the West Maui Mountains with their heads in the clouds...
Super short paved trail and easy to do and worth it!
Make sure you get in the water!! Climb under the entrance of the bridge!
Read the signs near the restrooms for the map, read the signs at the top for phallic history, show a Hawai‘i ID for free parking, and read the Foursquare tips for the secret path.
Only five dollars to park
Take an alternative path,explore the river up and enjoy one of the pools. I am not sure it is allowed but I can tell is 100% worth it.
If you're willing to, avoid the signs and venture the dirt paths at your own risk.
Get your hike on! It's well worth it. Wear shoes that you don't mind getting a bit mucky. Otherwise, mud dried and comes off easily- just do the hike!
Politely refuse to pay at the guardhouse.
Parking is 5 bucks. Kaamaina parking is free with hawaii id.
Looks like Jurassic Park.
A secret hike lies beyond the end of the official trail.
133! C cc bs see wv
Not worth the drive. Nice but only if you're close to it.
Take the secret "lovers trail" to the left of the hut.
When did they start charging for parking?
$5 for parking and the machine takes forever prepare to stand in line for20 minutes just to pay to get in. Retarded!
Amazing views, very easy hike. No rain when we went. A great place to check out while renting a motorcycle.
the hike to the overlook is easy and worth it for the view! you're likely to see a rainbow in the valley.
Expect it to be raining. One of the most beautiful and wet locations on Maui.
Flash floods sound like thunder.
