Some beautiful views, but not as much to do. I would recommend the road to Hana and definitely skip this if the road To Hana scared you.

A very scenic route as long as you aren't the driver. Over seven miles is less than 2 lanes and the far western end is a very narrow one lane. You would be a fool to drive it in anything larger than a compact car....More

This is truly a don't miss out drive. If you are even a bit squeamish about sketchy roads and heights close your eyes but don't pass this one up. You will definitely want to drive this route "clockwise" from Lahaina to Wailuku as you will...More

I drove from Lahaina clockwise around on this road on a Sunday. There was surprisingly quite a bit of traffic coming the opposite direction. Many people were hitting the beaches and it was quite a pretty drive. Most of the way is a one lane...More
