The Hana Highway, Hawaii

Hana Highway

If you ever wanted to visit Jurassic Park, here’s your shot. Another of the world’s most beautiful drives that makes for a marvelous motorcycle ride, Hana Highway is a breathtaking 60-mile stretch of road along the north side of the island that connects the small town of Hana to the rest of Maui. With more than 600 turns and 60 one lane bridges, it’s not for the novice or timid rider. The ocean is down on one side of the road, with mountains rising on the other, and a few spectacular waterfalls that keep your attention wandering.

The road is paved and in generally good condition, but there are wet areas from not only the waterfalls but the common downpours for which Hawaii is famous. Despite several drops of more than 1,000 feet, there are few guard rails.

Breathtaking and dangerous? Sounds like the ideal fantasy ride.
