Great views along the way. Watch out for bicyclists. If you brought a coat, sweatshirt or jacket bring it along for the ride. Last weekend it was 48 degrees at the top when I was there.

Want to climb 10,023 feet? Take the Crater Road up to the top. It's an exciting switchback road with jaw-dropping views. Driver, keep your eyes on the road. And don't disturb the Nēnē.
