The Iao Valley State Park is very lush and green with lovely scenery. They have serveral trails and levels to explore. The area is not wheelchair friendly and there are quite a few stairs to climb to get to the Needle lookout. There is access to an area that overlooks everything and my elderly Mom was able to enjoy the view from there while we hiked to the Needle. There is also some interesting information about a huge battle that was fought on the site.

We visited Iao Valley on our last day in Maui and are glad we did. It is beautiful and easily accessible. There are lots of hiking trails and numerous photo opportunities. It is definitely worth the short drive - be sure to take a jacket because it gets windy.

Go to if you're in the area but don't bother driving there from a far away place. It was a beautiful area, they could do a lot more with the place. Very short hike up to see the peak. Use the bathroom before you go because the port-o-potty situation is gross.

Really cool little side trip. We spent an hour or so here, but would have spent more time had it not been pooring rain. Still a really cool place, my wife and I both enjoyed the scenary.
