Iao Valley Tours

140 Reviews
Iao Valley

The iconic rock pinnacle known as the Iao Needle is the focus of Maui’s Iao Valley State Park.

Rising 2,250 feet (675 meters) into the air, the unusual plant-covered peak rises from the Iao Valley floor, surrounded by rainforest-covered volcanic craters, pools and streams.

The pinnacle was used as an altar, and the evocative location was the site of a famous battle between Kamehameha and the warriors of Maui.

Come to the Iao Valley State Park to follow easy hiking trails along tumbling streams. Views take in the Iao Needle, all the way across the rainforest to the coast at Kahului.

Practical Info

The Iao Valley is on the western side of Maui, 3 miles (5 kilometers) from the regional town of Wailuku. To get here from Wailuku, head west along Iao Valley Road.
