Old Government Road (off Highway 240)
Honokaa , Hawaii's insider take:

This hidden valley can be viewed from an outlook near Honokaa when driving along the Hamakua coastline, but if you want to see the idyllic, untouched wonder up close, the road down is pitched at a ridiculously steep 45-degree angle. Even with a four-wheel drive, you'll be better off in the hands of professionals. Try the Waipio Valley Wagon Tours held at 10:30, 12:30, and 2:30 Mondays through Saturdays, September through April; Mondays through Fridays May through August (45–3625 Mamane St.; 808-775-9518; Don't even think about walking it unless you're training for the Ironman Triathlon—your knees will be totally blown out by the time you get to the bottom, and then how in the world will you get back up?
