    My wife and I have been coming to Maui for the last 20 years. I have driven the road to Hana at least 6 times during that time and each time is different. I agree you need to get an early start and make a day of it. Stop in Hana and look around (we always eat lunch at Tutu’s). But then head on to the pools of Oheo. We have seen then serene and were there once after a heavy rain and the river was a raging torrent. Also check at the ranger station and find out how to get to the little cemetery where Charles Lindberg is buried. It is a beautiful and peaceful place. If you want to see old Maui, go to Hana.

    We did the road to Hana the last 2 days of our trip. There are 2 things I recommend , Book a room in Hana so you dont need to rush back and I woud never make a trip to Maui without making the drive to Hana it is that great of a trip! Its the drive of a lifetime ! Truly our families favorite part of our Maui trip. WE used the R2H cd it is great and stayed at the Hana Kai condos they were lovely. Dont miss the drive to Hana !

    I’ve been going to Maui since 1974 (not often enough though). Back in those days, the road to Hana was truly a challenge. Its been improved so much over the years, that I think we do visitors a disservice in categorizing it as a difficult drive with over 620 curves, etc. I think it scares some of them off.

    Perhaps I’m oversimplifying as I live in Colorado and am used to driving twisting mountainous roads, but I think not. I’d love to see guidebooks describe it more as a slow, relaxing all-day adventure than a challenge to be conquered.
