The trail is very rocky and I advise to take hiking boots or hard soles shoes. No shadows on the way, meaning if you do it in a sunny day you will feel the heat! View at the top with the wind turbines is very beautiful.

It was a difficult trail full of beautiful views. I would caution one to pay attention to the wind conditions and time of day. The trail is tasking to a novice trail goer like myself. The wind gusts on top of the lava rock with steep grades made it difficult to traverse. I'm glad I did it, but I might have to be coaxed to do the entire trail again.

Completed 11/7/20 Park is closed but a handful of people parking at the closed gate and walking into the park to hike. Secret hike was great! Very muddy, lots of bushwhacking, but very worth it. Definitely recommend shoes/boots and bring water. Worth the trip to the top.

Definitely a steep trail, especially in the beginning. Really rewarding view of the coastline at the top! Make sure to wear proper shoes.

Starting to get overgrown. Not a bad idea to bring a machete. Some of the lower plants are scratchy on your leg. There are pretty much always muddy sections given iao is a wet place on Maui. Wear shoes you don’t care about being muddy. Great view

Very cool hike! Didn't take too long and had some breathtaking views. The hardest part is finding your way in. A lot of people have been vague so here's my best shot at explaining it: You drive to the Iao Valley State Park, but there's a closed gate blocking the road for the last half mile. Step over the gate, then another, and now you're at the state park. Walk toward the back of the asphalt loop (you can see this loop in Google Maps), and there's a paved path. Follow the stairs and the paved path up as high as you can. You'll reach a little covered viewpoint that has a great view of the Iao Needle. There's a sign here that says Area Closed, Do not go beyond this sign. Go beyond it. Duck under the railing and stroll up the narrow dirt path. There is a fork in the "road" near a very large tree where we stayed right, keeping the Needle on our right and mostly in view. You eventually get to some very slippery rocks - if it rained recently, be careful - and toward the top you'll see an opportunity to climb a bit up. The climb is a little sketchy and you might get a bit muddy, but it's fairly easy for a mildly out of shape computer geek like myself. Now you're at the top of this ridge! Congrats! Some people said they pushed through some very thick brush to walk along other ridges, but we turned around here. We had probably walked a mile since ducking the railing.

This is not a good hike. Compared to other hikes you can do on Maui, this should be at the bottom of your list! Some info/suggestions about this hike if you want to do it anyway: - I’ve done it from both trailheads and would recommend going up from the one closer to Lahaina and then down that one too. The trail closer to Wailuku has nothing to recommend it as the trail is worse, the view is worse, and I think it’s also longer. - As others have said, it’s very hot (zero shade) and steep so keep that in mind and maybe go early in the morning (though I’ve gone midday and it was fine). - The windmills are pretty cool though.

Road is closed but after a certain time in the day everyone just walks past the closed gate. Beautiful views, but some bushwhacking towards the end.

This trail was a good early morning/ early afternoon hike, but I would not suggest for kids under about 7, or those who aren’t pretty comfortable with hiking. If you’re not good with your footing this probably isn’t the hike for you. There are many stream crossings, we were able to do them without getting our shoes wet. However I assume due to COVID and Maui being closed to tourists for so long the trail was really overgrown and made the narrow trails along the streams edge even more narrow. I wouldn’t even want to attempt this if it had rained the day before. We hit some slippery patches and it hadn’t rained in awhile. Over all good trial. There is two ending points we couldn’t make it to the main ending point because the trail was too hard for everyone in our party. But the second place finish was still pretty and well worth it.

Any tips on finding the trail head? Went out today, but there's a lot of different paths. Wasnt sure which one, but hiked for a mile and the wrong trail ended at the creek bed and we had to turn around.
