There are like 24 parking spots. We went in, paid $5 to park, saw there was no parking, and went right back out again and parked on the street leading up to the monument. Why did the park keep taking parking money when there were...More

We had a guided tour, but there were many tourists there on their own. Hiking is possible, but you can enjoy the view by walking around. The Needle itself is worth seeing. Hard to fathom how the indigenous people climbed to the top to act...More

That was the running joke between our family that we had timed it perfectly and just missed the rain that had passed through. This was a great experience for the gkids, it gave them something interesting to do that afternoon and provided that extra bit...More

After the terrible floods of 2016, the Iao Valley State Monument is open for business. A few areas are still cordoned off, but the main trails are open. Parking at the park is $5, save yourself a little money, walk a little further and park...More

Not sure how this monument page differs from the "Iao Valley" page. Oh well. I should start by saying that this isn't a huge park, so you won't be here for more than an hour or two. There are some side trails you can take,...More

Unsurpassed beauty. I am an older women(67) with mobility issues and I did not think I could walk up the winding staircase leading up to the viewing platform. Well no problem I took it very slowly and made it up to the top. Definitely worth...More

We stopped here first on our package tour of the Best of Maui. What a great way to start the day! The scene was absolutely beautiful. The walk up 133 steps was no problem as they are very small steps. Once at the top of...More

We loved the peace and beauty of the Iao Valley Monument area. Great easy walkways and fantastic views. Go early in the morning to have the place virtually to yourself. Neat area where Taro grows wild.

The visit was beautiful driving up to the valley. You pay for parking and hike in the valley. Some easy going sections.

I visited Iao Valley twice during my trip to Maui, once in the drizzle and fog, once on a sunny day. 2 entirely different experiences. In all honesty the foggy day was the best as it lent a mysterious quality to the monument and the...More
