Beautiful, but small. There's a nice set of hiking trails, but less than a mile of them. Beautiful views of the streams coming down from the mountain, and of the IAO needle. Worth the trip (and the $5 for parking), but it only takes an hour. Plan to combine it with one of the other nearby attractions (Bailey House and/or the nearby botanical garden).

We felt like we got to see authentic Maui, not touristy Maui here. Nature, culture and beauty were all rolled into one. It's a small, but majestic park. $5 for parking was a small price to pay. Mahalo!

Been here many times but this time shared it with older family members. I think they really enjoyed this less busy day and picknic lunch in the park.

Awesome scenery, with historical significance explained. Great walking trails and not too strenuous. Free except for parking, and can be visited in about an hour.

I am so glad we visited here. It was an easy drive over from Kaanapali. The short hike through the park was truly beautiful and a highlight of our family trip! Don't miss and don't forget your camera.
