A short walk to a spectacular view. A very easy walk. In fact I think it took longer to find a park. A great spot I would definitely recommend going here

$5 fee to park but SO worth it. Just the drive there was beautiful. Once you are there, there are a bunch of small hikes, walks and a garden. I could have spent hours there since it was so peaceful. It is impressive and a...More

I grew up an idyllic location like this in Nuuanu Valley--the river, vegetation, trees, mountains, the valley spoke to me of old Hawaii. Walking up to the viewing area close to the Iao peak provided information and a variety of views of streams, native plants...More

For a short drive for us (we were staying in Kihei) it was well worth it. Nice little trail, beautiful towering cliffs, nice bathroom facility, certainly worth the visit. Would recommend. Not an all day activity, 1-2 hours. No need for athletic shoes, the path...More

We were hoping the road would be open up to Iao Valley as it had been closed for awhile due to mud slides. It was raining, but thats to be expected. Was able to enjoy all the flowers on the trail.

We went to get a little hiking but instead played in the river. Most of the trails are paved but there are lots of steps. Bring a long sleeve shirt, it is always cloudy here and the wind can really pick up. Bring water sandals...More

Paved trail that is short but the view is worth it. Bus tour stop so hopefully you can avoid that time. Compared to the real hikes this seems pedestrian but the valley os spectacular

Nice little hike (I mean little, if you're expecting the hikes that other areas of Hawaii offer) with streams that you can swim in, if you feel so inclined, although I don't recommend it for various reasons - notably, the college student who told me...More

I’m not really sure how to review a scenic location other than to say it’s amazing and not to be missed. Don’t just go up to the top, make sure you go to the bottom part as well and maybe stick your feet in the...More
