Iao Valley Needle

Located in Central Maui, the Iao Valley Needle is a unique rock formation that is the results of many, many years of erosion, making the rock pinnacle shaped, resembling a needle. The Iao Valley itself is a peaceful lush area with easy hikes, exotic tropical plants, and natural pools. The ridge-top lookout offers a fantastic view of the valley and Kahului Harbor.

The site of Iao is where a famous and bloody battle took place that changed Hawaii history forever. King Kamehameha I destroyed the Maui army in 1790 in his effort to unite the Hawaiian Islands. The Iao Valley Needle, with its impressive height of 2,250 feet, was used as a natural altar. Today the Needle is covered with foliage.

There are some easy hiking trails nearby. Restroom facilities are available but there is no drinking water.


From Wailuku take Highway 32 (Kaahumanu Road) west. This road then turns into Highway 320 which leads directly to the 'Iao Valley State Park. There is a paved parking lot at the end of the road.
