Where? : Central Maui, just west of Wailuku at the end of Iao Valley Rd.
What? : Historic and state park, located at the deep gorge of the Iao river, home to iconic Iao rock needle, high mountain, standing wall cliffs covered with lush jungle vegetation.
Due note 1: The mountain above is the rainiest place in Maui, do expect to have rain showers during your visit. Usually there is less chance of rain at the morning hours so try to visit here early as you can.
Due note 2: Parking fee: $5.00/car.
Due note 3: If you are planning to hike the un-official trail bring walking shoes, this trail is muddy and flipflops are not recommended.
