We happened upon this highway (haha) quite by accident, completely ignorant about the danger that lie ahead. With our two kids, I was driving when we made the choice to venture on, to the point of no return. I'm a good driver, but my word . . . I have never seen nor heard of a more narrow road, literally...

Thought I had died when I saw a bright white light which happened to be the headlights of another car on direct course for a head on collision! This former hiking trail is a narrow path to the infamous Maui banana bread, which is halfway on this treacherous journey. Befriend an elderly neighbor that can bake bread instead. Save the... More

I'm surprised by so many negative reviews. This was the most beautiful drive we have ever seen (better than the road to Hana because that was too long). We accidentally did it as most people do, not realizing how long it would take. You have to go slow, like 5mph around the curves to make sure you don't hit anyone... More

During our first few days in Maui we decided to explore the Kapalua area as I was curious about the golf course and wanted to check it out. Since we were planning on heading back to Kahului later that day to hit Costco we looked on a travel map and saw the highway that looped around the northwest of the... More

When I landed on Maui I had only been driving regularly for two months. I purposely avoided Hana having heard how difficult the drive was. And after an lazy afternoon in Lahaina and my friend and I needed to get back to Kahului for dinner, we thought - why not take a new route up the north shore? Why wasn't... More

We gave little credence to the few comments we heard about issues with road. Heck we had a rental SUV and a couple hours before dark. Why not what could be so bad. An hour or so on a seemingly never ending single lane road it becomes obvious that you have no option but to sweat it out. Add rain... More

As someone who is typically a dare devil I didn't give the winding roads on the map a second thought. Until they turned into one lane off a cliff with no guard rail and barely enough room for a car. After the first half mile we knew we had to turn around and luckily found a small place to. On... More

We didn't see the sign for rental cars to stop and by the time we figured out we had to have passed it, we were past the point of no return! Sheer drop offs with no guardrails, blind hairpin curves, constant elevation changes, narrow single lane with some turnouts (for backing up to allow oncoming traffic to pass - nerve-wracking...

Let me share my story about navigating this incredible road. My wife, I and 16 year old twins left our Kaanipali hotel and headed south, bound for Hana. After fueling the rental just down the road I looked at the map and said to my wife….why don’t we go the other way, north, to get to Hana. We’ve never tried... More
