As we take you on a journey to our hometown on the far eastern slopes of Haleakala where the ride, the thrill, and the beauty never ends. Enjoy scenic ocean views and rugged coastlines as we traverse one of the top 5 most beautiful drives in the world. Along the way we'll discover "the best banana bread on Maui" in a little community, built upon an ancient lava flow, where ancient Hawaiian farming, practices and cultural traditions still exist. Take a dip into a fresh waterfall pool along the Hana highway at Pua'aka'a state park. Learn about the historic value of this picturesque highway. Discover lava tubes and a guest favorite, black sand beach, and enjoy lunch at Waiʻānapanapa state park, swimming also available. Tour through the quaint town of Hana and learn of its foundation and history as we start our journey Beyond Hana. See the rainforest dissipate as we journey along the south side of Haleakala where the windswept slopes are visible due to lack of vegetation. Travel along a one-lane, seemingly kua'aina (backcountry) road and discover why rental cars aren't allowed on this section of "highway". Stop for scenic views of the Grand Canyon of Hana and journey down from the upcountry slopes of Haleakala.
