Take A Drive On The Most Dangerous Road In Hawaii… If You Dare
Hawaii Route 200, also known as Saddle Road, traverses Hawaii Island for 52.7 miles from downtown Hilo to its junction with Highway 190 near Waimea. The road is notoriously dangerous, and was featured by Conde Nast Traveler as being one of the “10 Scariest Highways For White-Knuckle Road Trips.” At Only in Hawaii, we certainly agree with this designation, and here’s why.
