Beautiful views but really wondered what would happen if we met on coming traffic. At times I thought I was in Ireland or Scotland with the lush, green, rolling hills. Lovely little town and the best art gallery at the top of the hill. Very picturesque.

I did this drive twice in the same trip. First on a rented motorcycle, in the rain, by myself - AWESOME ! I went from Lahaina to Wailuku and back again. Then my wife and kids were curious about the blowhole, etc so we went in the rental car and wound up going all the way to Kahakuloa. Yes, it... More

My family and I were driving the north loop of Maui today, thoroughly enjoying the sights. Really worth the effort, actually, the road itself was much better than one year ago, having been newly paved. We stopped at Julia's Banana Bread stand ("best banana bread on the planet") and headed up the hill out of Kahakuloa Village onto the rest... More

First off, if you are not sure about the drive, check it out inch by inch on google earth. Yes its on street view. Worth the drive but take it easy and enjoy the drive and views. Pull out and have a look whenever you get a chance instead of rubber necking it. Best drive is from Kapalua side as... More

RT 30 is a nice tame scenic route. Loved it. Careful tho - It somewhat suddenly turns into RT 340 - a one lane two way snake that will leave most drivers ... well search Trip Advisor for 340. :)

I love this road! I have driven it twice now and the ride is not so bad. I took my wife who was terrified after reading these reviews and she loved it. Just a side note I did not take her against her will...we just missed the sign to let us know to turn around, once we were on the... More

When you start out on this road above Kapulua it is very scenic and nice. There are places to pull out and wonderful views. The road was paved and a good road at the beginning. When you see the sign that it is no longer maintained by the state turn around! Really! It is impossible to enjoy the views as... More

This was a thrill of a life time. I thought the Road to Hana was exciting and nail biting, that was a walk in the park compared to this north shore drive. Excellent advice given in a previous post to drive clockwise as it puts you against the mountain the entire way. It is one lane road, very narrow and... More

Let me start by saying that I live in Montana, I have driven "Going To The Sun" highway many times and I am used to one lane roads on high mountain tops. Compared to this drive, the Going To The Sun highway feels like a six lane freeway in Los Angeles. So there we were, just finished a yoga class... More

What an awesome road trip to take! Whoever drives should be very brave, and be prepared to watch the road carefully. This is a 2 Lane Hwy. for the most part and very Windy on very high Mountain trails. The environment is gorgeous so you want to crane your neck out the window constantly. Have a great time, but choose... More
