“Fun Drive”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

This road is very scenic with beautiful views of the coast line. It's also a lot of fun to drive on if you like s-curve roads. We used this road several times and even at night it's an entertaining drive.

“Weirdest place- where am I?”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

This is a verdant valley between mountains- all tidy and clean. If you dropped out of the sky and didn't know better, you would never guess you are in Hawaii at all. Reminds me of Hobbiton or something. Don't know if I'd GO there, but passing through, it was pretty rad.

“A Beautiful Drive”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

We took this drive as a different way of going from north to south and were enchanted by how beautiful it is and how easy it is to drive. The road is good but it does a fair amount of climbing. A lovely and relaxing side road.

“A beautiful scenic drive.”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

This is a beautiful road to drive and one of the main arteries to and from Hawi. Don't be in a hurry, perhaps bring a camera, take your time and enjoy the view.

“Scenery from Heaven”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

Do yourself a favor: when travelling up to Hawi, don;r limit yourself to the coast route, take this " road less traveled".
It is widy and climbs up the mountain, but it is lush, green, with gorgeous scenery... check out the cows and horses with million dollar views of Maui.... maybe this is the real secret to the great Big Island beef flavor!
