Good God, I wish I would have read reviews before driving on this road. It is a single lane highway the entire time. If you are a thrill seeker you might enjoy this, if you just want to see pretty sites I would recommend going...More

Not for the faint hearted, make sure you rent a smaller car that has good handling!! There were tons of switchbacks, twists and turns and right on the edge of a cliff. There are turn-offs for amazing views. We had a minivan and made it...More

This is definitely not recommended unless you are an extremely good driver and it is certainly not for the feint of heart. Although the scenery is beautiful, there is a seven miles stretch of road that is one lane along the cliff with rock walls...More

Drove this counterclockwise from the airport town back to Lahaina. The road to Hana is tame compared to this. At least 4-8 miles is mostly single lane with a drop off on one side and the jungle on the other. Lots of tight 180 switchbacks....More

Extremely dangerous single lane road if you meet an incoming vehicle. The positive reviewers probably did not, or made the other vehicle back up. Reversing hundreds of feet next to a deadly cliff is not fun. Dumb tourists carry on.

The wife and I drove this beauty and she usually hates winding roads, but loved it! Stunning scenery. Slow pace with frequent stops to check out the view and snap some pics. Absolutely worth it. We drove from east to west, so not the typical...More

I drove this road on Feb 12 2017 and all I can say is the views are amazing , absolutely stunning. Driving through the little town half way through (can't remember the name of it ) is like a movie scene of a sleepy town...More

I have to agree with the other reviewers advising NOT to be scared away from taking this drive. It is not inherently dangerous as long as you drive with the same common sense I hope most drivers use. In a mid-sized SUV, I made the...More

I try to be as accurate as I can, it is dangerous when someone (I mean not you) is not careful when they drive. But did you get to stop by and view the views?
