Check before you go. Apparently making road repairs. Made the trip and did not know in advance. If you do go, the town of Wailuku was a nice place to shop. It’s nearby.

Loved this area! Hiked all the way up which was just a little challenging. Was able to get some great pictures, there are a lot of different plants and flowers.

Lucky enough to visit before the area closed for maintenance. Mountains are so majestic and serene. You could feel the mana. A must see, but please respect the locals and environment if you come.

It was a nice 5-15 mph ride on a road that was almost a single lane. Bridges were a single lane and there are a lot of them. I thought it would be like Highway 1 along the Big Sur, but it wasn't. Not that...More
