Iao Valley State Park
"Iao Valley State Park"
Home to the famous "Iao Needle" and a great diversion if you have time on your way to the airport as you are leaving Maui. We visited the Iao Valley before we headed back to the airport and I am so glad we did not miss this beautiful area.
'Iao Valley is the site of one of the most famous battles that occurred in 1790 and changed Hawaii history forever when King Kamehameha I destroyed the Maui army in an effort to unite the Hawaiian Islands
"Iao Valley Hiking Trails"
This picture is of the gorgeous river along one of the hiking trail in the Iao Valley State Park. The hiking trails tend to be on the short side, not very long.
