June 30, 2019 by Sophie Boudreau One Of America’s Most Beautiful Drives Is Also One Of Its Most Dangerous There’s nothing more delightful than a breathtaking scenic drive, and America is home to its fair share of such spots. While there’s something utterly wonderful about enjoying a car-bound journey through our country’s most beautiful regions, these incredible views aren’t without their risks. CNN Travel recently released its list of the world’s most harrowing roadways, and one of America’s prettiest regions made the cut. Are you up for the challenge? Flickr/Intiaz Rahim The highway is narrow, essentially creating a one-lane trafficway that requires expert attention and handling while driving. If you choose to make the journey, prepare to give inside traffic the right of way when you come across fellow travelers. As if its limited space weren’t enough, 340 also features plenty of unexpected twists, turns, and bridges. It’s important to remain vigilant while enjoying this scenic drive – but this extra attention to safety is worth it to experience some of Hawaii’s greatest wonders.

If you’re up for the challenge, you’ll have the chance to check out sections of Maui that most tourists can only dream up, including a natural geyser and some of the most marvelous ocean vistas you’ve ever seen. Allow plenty of time to complete your Maui outing before the sun goes down and don’t forget to hand a camera to your passenger – after all, this is one excursion that you’ll want to remember forever. Flickr/daveynin Kahekili Highway stretches for 20 miles along the North Shore of Maui, Hawaii. Also known as Highway 340, this one-of-a-kind roadway offers drivers some of the most stunning views imaginable, from pockets of lush rainforest to brilliant cliffside overlooks to mountainous beauty as far as the eye can see. While its natural splendor can’t be overstated, Kahekili’s many dangers make it a risky drive for visitors, particularly those who aren’t used to traversing rugged island terrain.
