About the Road to Hana Routes

Classic Road to Hana Route + Map

The "classic" Road to Hana route starts in Kahului near the airport and ends in Kipahulu, just outside Hana town. It takes about 10-12 hours to complete and you can make over 20 stops on your way to Haleakala National Park! Once you reach the park, you'll turn around the same way you came and head back to Kahului on Hana Highway. Check out the classic Road to Hana map below:

Loop Road to Hana Route + Map

The Road to Hana "loop" is an alternate way to complete the Road to Hana. This trip starts in Kahului like the classic, but instead of turning around in Kipahulu, you'll continue along the back road to Hana to the town of Kula in upcountry Maui. From there, Kula is about 25 minutes back to Kahului. Check out the loop Road to Hana map below:

Reverse Road to Hana Route + Map

The "reverse" Road to Hana route is the exact opposite of the loop! If you take this trip you'll truly be visiting the Road to Hana in a completely unique way. You'll start in Kula then work your way to Kahului, starting the Road to Hana at the end. This drive truly has some advantages - like you'll visit some of the most popular stops (Waianapanapa State Park and Seven Sacred Pools) first! You'll also be traveling in the opposite direction of traffic. Check out the reverse Road to Hana map below:

Please note, that if you're taking the loop or reverse routes, you'll be traveling on unpaved roads. Many rental car companies do not allow you to drive on the back road to Hana so you will be doing so at your own discretion.
