Re: Offroad tours in Hawaii?

My wife and I have been going to Hawaii every year or so and we love renting a Jeep to go exploring/off roading. Do yourself a big favor and buy a guidebook called Maui Revealed. We found it invaluable in finding the best off the beaten path places to explore. Most of the places mentioned earlier are paved roads. We tried Polipoli State park and loved it. It starts out paved, then turns into a narrow, winding dirt road up the side of the Haleakala crater and has dozens of hairpin turns (and a few cattle to dodge) to make it interesting. It's through a forest and when you get to the top your actually in a redwood forest! It's all in all about 10 total miles to get to the top. There are quite a few other off road type areas but this was one of the better ones we found. Have fun.

Re: Offroad tours in Hawaii?

I live on Maui and the only place I can think of is Poli-Poli. Google Waipoli Rd. and just follow that road. It goes all the way up to the back side of Haleakala Mt. Its the only legal road where its not paved and a 4x4 vehicle is suggested. You'll pass a lavender farm, great scenery overlooking the West Maui, a park to eat lunch and depending what time you go, you'll see para-gliders. Its also a hunting area. Have a great time here and if you see a black FJ Cruiser with aftermarket bumpers, 3"lift and Mud terrains. Honk and wave.

Re: Offroad tours in Hawaii?

Kehei Rent A Car rents jeeps. Well travelled jeeps. No zip up windows anymore. Well used. But... it will go on the beach on the north shore. The rental agreement basically says that they rent jeeps so you can go anywhere. No restrictions. But, it is a tooth rattling jeep.

Bring a backpack. That way you can carry any stuff you take with you. There is no point in locking the door... no windows.

We see a green one down by the Kihei Cafe regularly.
