The Hāna Highway is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was designated the Hāna Millennium Trail by President Bill Clinton. In fact both President and Mrs. Clinton visited Hāna shortly before that.
This Hāna Millennium Trail of ours is used by the locals of all the towns along the exquisite Hāna Coast to get to shopping, movies, and anything that the big city will afford (not to say that Kahului would be considered a big city). The highway is 52 miles from Kahului to Hāna. It has 59 bridges, but only 13 of them have two lanes. The reason many people resist driving to Hāna, is part in parcel due to the windiness of the road. One would have to survive about 620 curves on the drive. In fact, a very typical thing to do once one arrives in Hāna is to go to the Hasegawa General Store (made very famous in a song in 1963 by Paul Weston) and purchase one of their legendary t-shirts that say, “I survived the Hāna Highway!”
