We will be staying in Volcano Village and want to take the trip to Mauna Kea with one of the touring companies. I realize we're on the "wrong" side of the island for convenient pick up's.
Is Saddle Road a decent drive from the Hilo area to the junction of Mauna Kea road (Junction 28)? One the touring companies is indicating a pick up at this point and we're wondering if anyone has used this pick up point. and could give us some feedback.
