Enjoyed the jeep ride through the garden of the gods and kept going all the way to the beach. Very bumpy, red dirt trip... Glad we had a hard top jeep with AC to avoid the dust.

Interesting rock formation on the four-wheel drive road to seashore on the very isolated north end of Lanai.

If you like "moonscapes" and lots of various red rocks, it's ok, but not sure if I'd take the time to do it again.... It's quite an interesting road trip as far as the driving goes, no doubt...

If you have transportation (ie. a jeep) you need to see this place. Choose your day carefully - preferably after a few dry days. The road has a couple of places that can get dicey, and even in good conditions it is a 30 -35 minute drive. But when you get there it is other-worldly! Red dirt, random boulders and... More

It's nice up there but nothing you can't see by driving from other places. I wanted to write this to highlight the rental car situation. Dollar Rental had us sign the agreement and Afterwards told us spots we could and couldn't go based on conditions of the roads. We were OK to go to here but it was pretty hairy... More

It's a 45 minute bumpy jeep ride to get there but worth the effort. Geological phenomena that is more than worth the trip. Beautiful views of Molokai from on top the vista and if you're lucky, there's Muflon sheep visible in the lower pastures. Beware large mud holes on last mile of trip in...get some speed up to plow on... More

Nice off road adventure. Rent a jeep for a day and go visit this place, it looks like Mars with the red dirt and rocks, but with the advantage of a beautiful ocean view. Keep riding on that road and you'll be at a beautiful beach where you can have a picnic.

Never miss this if you are in Lanai! Never seen before amazing rock formations in acres of land. Very barren land and you forget this is Hawaii!!

Another fun little destination in your beat up rental Jeep. The different colors of the sand are truly amazing. Just follow your trusty map to get here and you will have some nice sight lines of the northwestern part of the island.
