For those stout hearted  adventurer type travelers, the Hana highway has more to offer beyond the Hana highway- tourist sight seeing road.

You will need some luck and a car with ability to handle some difficult conditions like tight narrow turns and potholes. Rewards are incredible views, rocky deserted beaches and even a winery!  Check your car rental contract to take the southern route past Hana.  Some companies will not allow rental cars on this part of the road.

Maps and driving directions with offshoot roads to two historic churches and the hiking trail to Haleakala, can be found in the Maui Trailblazer guidebook.
