We did not read the reviews of this drive before going around the north loop this morning and I'm glad we didn't. Some people are such scaremongers! Yes the middle section is narrow and you have to be careful, but it is not nearly as...More

We decided to “go for it” and take a scenic drive on the North Loop, despite concierge warning us not to. I don’t like heights much, so this trip was a combination of exhilaration (and fear) and truly amazing views. Glad we drove clockwise, so...More

The beginning of this drive has double lane roads which quickly turn to single lane in both directions. Once you pass the Blow Hole site, the road narrows to a dingle lane with room for occasional opposing traffic. However, the northern most of the island...More

The road is narrow with some signs to honk before turns. There are a few one lane bridges but not a problem since there are not a lot of cars. Worth the drive.

Quick pointers to make this wonderful piece of riding even more enjoyable: (1) Go counterclockwise from Kahului rather than clockwise from Lahaina - you will be on the ocean side of the road, with even better views. (2) Start in the afternoon (between 3 &...More

Definitely one of the most beautiful and adventurous activities to do and not for the faint hearted. If you can, drive clockwise so you are on the inside lane and not bordering the cliffs (which we did) as it was quite scary. If you rent...More

This road is not as bad or dangerous as some have made out on this space. Take your time and use common sense when driving it. It's not as spectacular as the road to Hana but it is much shorter and has wonderful views so...More

We rented a Harley from Eagle Rider and went counter-clockwise around the north part of the island. Maybe it was being on a bike but the road wasn't near as bad as people made it out to be. Far less traffic than the road to...More
