I would recommend anyone to visit the Iao Valley. Ensure to walk with your swimsuit the river flows beautifully. A must see! The mountains are breathtaking! If you love nature don't skip it.

The state park is still closed, but there is still some stuff to do there. The picnic area nearby are open, the Japanese garden nearby is still open, and the Wailuku river is still accessible for wading and swimming. There's just not a whole lot...More

A beautiful small park. This is an excellent place to have a picnic and take short hikes. It can close due to flooding after heavy rainfalls so check online ahead of time if you are planning to do any hiking.

Road access closed due to flood damage, but we drove close as could and parked near gates blocking entrance. We were able to hike a trail from parking lot to get closer for better view and photos.
