    While the road to hana had beautiful, and breath taking views, this was not the most enjoyable part of my trip. It was very scenic, put most of the road was very long and had lots of hairpin turns. Be sure to stop any time you get the chance, and get some good food. My only big tip: DO NOT take the "back side of the road to Hana"! It is very scary, and low maintenance with very few guard railings.

    Loved the Road to Hana, the quality of the road is very good, no potholes, smooth tarmac, centre lines etc. Nice waterfalls and view points along the way. Though the lack of signage is disappointing - signs for waterfall and stream names etc are no where to be seen. I recommend using Google Maps for the drive it has most scenic attractions marked. I would suggest a day to complete the drive to Hana from Kahului if you want to stop at most of the attractions.

    Anyone that has been to Maui, will tell you to go Hana or even when you are the locals they will say the same. Road to Hana should be the number one on the list. If you decide to go then leave early in the morning like other yelp reviewers have mentioned. Its one road and people tend to drive slowly for those who don't know how to drive.. You will see beautiful breathtaking waterfalls, valleys, and ocean. You will be driving along the coast. You can stop to do hikes but the journey to Hana is the best. You'll find several stands that sells food, banana bread. Take the anti-nausea medicine prior to going if you know long trips or curvy road makes you sick.

    The Hāna Highway is a 64.4-mile long stretch of Hawaii Routes 36 and 360 which connects Kahului with the town of Hāna in east Maui. On the east after Kalepa Bridge, the highway continues to Kīpahulu as Hawaii Route 31. Although Hāna is only about 52 miles from Kahului, it takes about 2.5 hours to drive when no stops are made as the highway is very winding and narrow and passes over 59 bridges, 46 of which are only one lane wide. There are approximately 620 curves along Route 360 from just east of Kahului to Hāna, virtually all of it through lush, tropical rainforest. Many of the concrete and steel bridges date back to 1910 and all but one are still in use. That one bridge, badly damaged by erosion, has been replaced by a portable steel ACROW bridge erected by the United States Army Corps of Engineers.

    Please don't go on this route if it's raining, not worth risking your life.

    Road to Hana is a must. You should consider doing it in 2 days. Download the Gypsy Guide app. It was very helpful on where to stop and gave us tons of information about Maui. You can play it into your car speakers. Don't forget your power cord. Thanks to all the residents along the way who have to put up with us tourists. You have a beautiful home.
