About 600 curves and 54 bridges mean it’s at least a 3 hour trip to Hana – one way. On the east after Kalepa Bridge, the highway continues to Kīpahulu as Hawaii Route 31 and winds up Haleakala and back down to Kahului. We like coming the back way – but watch for weather and cattle- some sections are unpaved past Kipahulu and one lane curves mean an hour for the 10 mile stretch.
