Sketchy drive to get here and even down the road to the church and his grave. There were a couple of nice horses on the neighbouring property to the church and I think you can camp here, otherwise could of skipped it.

Past mile marker 41, if you're travelling from Hana, is the turn off to the left to the church which has his and other grave sites. After you turn left onto the narrow road, you go a very short distance and then turn left again...More

Beautiful setting. It is easy to see why the great pioneer wished to be laid to rest here. The views from the grounds of the small churchyard are breath-taking. It is a little difficult to find, located a few miles past the town of Hana...More

Walk past the church and graveyard down to the cliff overlooking the ocean and you will understand why Lindbergh chose this as his final resting place. Be respectful of the church and graves.

About a mile from Kipahulu (Haleakala National Park) away from Hana, turn left onto an unmarked road. If you find the main road getting difficult to drive (a bit scary), then you have driven too far from Hana. Find a safe place to turn around....More
