What you'll do

Youth under 16 FREE! Meet at Iao Valley State Park home to the Iconic Iao Needle Where: Central Maui, just west of Wailuku We will meet at the top of the parking lot area. You will begin by seeing the towering emerald peaks that guard the lush valley floor of Iao Valley State Park. This park is located in Central Maui just west of Wailuku, this peaceful 4,000-acre, 10-mile long park is home to one of Maui's most recognizable landmarks, the 1,200-foot Iao Needle. We will explore the top of the needle resting area and take iconic pictures of the Iao needle mountain area. From there (depending on weather) we will take a secret trail up to higher elevations. The vantage point for taking pictures on both sides of the majestic valley are possible in this area. We will continue with a guided hike down to the streams while I will share the history and secrets of Maui. We will hike based on the skill level of each individual group. My goal is to create an amazing experience where you will learn "insider secrets" of the Iao Valley State Park and other parts of Maui. We will take a snack break, swim in the clear natural pools, pick guavas (if in season). Then make our way back to the parking lot.

Where you'll be

There is a well-marked, paved pedestrian path leading from the parking lot to view Iao Needle and the ridge-top lookout provides incredible views of the valley. The needle is sometimes covered in clouds, so an early start is your best bet for a good view. Families can also take a rainforest walk or explore interactive exhibits at the Hawaii Nature Center, which is also located within Iao Valley. Restroom facilities are available.
