Wanted to post more for any car/motion sickness sufferers. Before we went I didn’t know what to expect. I’d read posts about car sickness with all the switchbacks, and also the possibility of difficulty breathing at the top due to the altitude. I was a...More

We drove to the summit in our rented Nissan and had no issues on the drive. Lots of switchbacks and climbing but the road is 2 lanes with plenty of places to turn off for those going faster to get by. And the view from...More

Well, it's 10,000 foot elevation and the highest you can be on Maui anyhow! It's a beautiful, SLOW, curvy route up the green mountain and a wonderful view! Then the afternoon clouds may encircle you and the misty (or more) rains begin for your trip...More

World class location, superb must see. Staff is excellent with kids and the views are the best. Try to time your trip with early morning since it can cloud up later.
