"IAO Valley Needle & State Park" Top 5 Page for this destination Maui Things to Do Tip by Albernfrau

Maui Things to Do: 486 reviews and 992 photos


This park is located just outside of Wailuku. The needle is a 2,000 ft natural rock pinnacle overlooking the Iao Stream. This park is beautiful; the scenery breathtaking. There are some paths around the park. The drive up to the park is gorgeous. I felt like we were in a fairytale with the mist surrounding the tops of Pu'u Kukui Crater. Tips: Dress warmly.
Restrooms available.

Directions: End of 'Iao Valley Road (Highway 32), Wailuku, Central Maui
