“Pretty little park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

A pretty little park that will provide a short, cool and very lush diversion from the beach for an hour or so

Some of the guides books do tend to overhype this park

Probably not worth a special trip but if your in the area worth a stop

“Nice contrast to surf and sand”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

We took a day off from the beach. Nice contrast to surf and sand. Beautiful scenery, nice valley. Short little walks. Would be nicer to go deeper into valley. Good outing if in the area, a little short for a special trip.

Spectacular scenery but a short go there, climb 133 steps to a lookout, take a picture and that's it.

“Pretty spot, but nothing spectacular”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

The state park has nice greenery and various walking trails. However nothing unique or spectacular. I would skip it if you only have a limited number of days in Maui. The Hawaiin islands have so many other gorgeous sights to witness. Worth visiting only if you have a lot of time, and have already checked off other attractions.
