The views along this drive are outstanding although drivers need to be cautious for rock falls on the road! We stopped in several locations and saw whales breaching and diving down showing their tails. We weren't sure how far to go knowing the road condition became poor - maybe naïve but we expected a sign warning us the conditions would... More

We just completed this drive and drove it from East to West or counterclockwise. The weather was great . The road is in good condition and paved all the way . However there are some narrow single lane stretches with blind corners and caution must be used. Most folks were very courteous and safety conscious when meeting them on the... More

My husband and I are there in May 2017 and are planning on driving this route. Do you have recommended stops?

We've driven the Hana Highway, the back road to Hana, and now Hwy 30. The one we enjoyed the least was the Hana Highway. We drove Hwy 30 west to east or clockwise. The views out there are fantastic. The road, for the most part, is quite nice. There's a few spots where if you meet an on-coming car you... More

If you are leary of driving on narrow 1 lane roads, with turnouts, have someone else drive on this stretch. For those who have lived in the PNW and driven logging roads in the mountains, this drive is like that, but only paved. This road is less traveled than the well-known Hana Highway, but what it lacks in notoriety, it... More

This is a scary world class drive on a twisty hilly road with incredible views.We went over and came back the same way. It is worth it as you get different views. There are not a lot of places to visit but if you do you will seem some world class views and art galleries. It is best done on... More

There are two parts to Maui; the tourist, golfers, honeymooners, resort guests parts, and then there are the other parts. Obviously the Hana Highway and Haleakala Volcano occupy the vast majority of the southern part of the island, but then there's the northern part. A huge part of the northern part of the island is protected and cannot be accessed,... More

The road is not bad till after the blow hole. See sweet heart rock while at the blow hole. After that it is narrow and one lane go slow honk your horn around the turns where you can't see. The view are some of the best. We have driven it several times. Never had problems. Take your time watch for... More

A 45 minute drive on a one lane paved path (it's barely a car length wide), overgrown with vegetation (no signs of maintenance!) hugging the mountain (watch for falling rocks!) that left us nauseous with terror. No guard rails! Most of the turns are blind so you have no idea what's coming at you head on. At one point, we... More

We began the north loop drive laughing at people going the other way as it was banked back very far. Driving clockwise around the loop, we were enjoying the beautiful road. We went through Kapalua and bought an ice cream and continued our journey. The views were great along the drive and that is where the four stars came from.... More
