Circumnavigate west Maui - hwy 30/340 + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
Start in the town of Lahaina heading north on hwy 30, which turns into hwy 340, and back to hwy 30 as you make your way around west Maui back to the finish where you started in Lahaina.
Along 30 it's mostly flat with the blue pacific ocean on your left, and along 340 it's breathtaking switchbacks overlooking cliffs with the blue pacific several hundred feet below. Slice through small local towns, watch out for falling rock, and enjoy the lush vegetation along hwy 340.
There are lots of sweeping curves on hwy 30 overlooking the pacific ocean, and most of hwy 340 is smooth with hilly switchbacks. We rode in mostly 2nd gear along hwy 340 between 10mph, and 25 mph to keep things safe.
Lao Valley State Park is a good place to take a stretch, but there are no food vendors here. If you see a local fruit stand it's a good place to get some fresh pineapple/mango/coconut drink. There are many scenic lookout spots along the entire route which overlook cliffs and the pacific ocean.
We rented two Harley 883 sportsters, and an electroglide from EagleRiders - due to the switchbacks the smaller bikes were more suited to this route.
