road past Hana, actually where the Charles Lindberg grave is located, has not
seen by many tourists as the rental car companies forbid you driving in this
area. A few years ago there was good reason for this because the road was
not very good and in places would require a 4WD vehicle, with a winch even, to
be able to get through. With fairly recent repairs and improvements to the
road has made it passable for passenger cars. The first time we took the
road, and each time really, we decided we would turn back if we had to. We
never had to turn back. I would not recommend taking this road except on
good sunny days and you should have plenty of survival provisions because
it is possible for a rain to wash the road out both in front and back of
you. Cellular service seemed to be good all the way around, so be sure to
take your cell phone if you venture past Hana too far. Part of the road is dirt,
but most of it is paved, albeit only a single lane.
road is right on the edge in places and there are signs for you to blow your
horn before going around the corner to warn oncoming traffic.
