I hope someone can give me some insight. We are going to be in Maui for only 7 days and we plan on doing the road to Hana. In addition, in the guide book Maui Revealed they also discuss the Over the top road past Kapalua on the west side. However, they don't do a very good job of describing this road. They basically say it is very pretty, you should go from west to east(clockwise) and there are 2 sections(one is 1 1/2 miles and one is 21/2 miles) that are 1 lane only and if you meet a car and there is no turnout - the car that is going uphill is supposed to back up until they reach a turn out so the downhill vehicle can pass.
Here are my questions:
1) If you were doing Hana and only have 7 days - would you also do this drive?
2) Is it still true that the road is this narrow that 2 vehicles can not meet?
3) They don't really explain how long this road is or where you come out that I can tell -- so if you take this drive and continue to go west to east(clockwise) how many miles and how long in time approximately is this? And where do you come out at?
4) Lastly - is it worth our limited time frame to do this drive (your opinion).
The guide book makes some of the stops sound amazing - but like I said, the info is a little open ended.
Thank you so much for your help!! Aloha
