Congratulations to Hawaii's 2013 Designated Scenic Byways!

Special congratulations to four very special byways on receiving official designation status as Hawaii's latest Scenic Byways. This doubles our state byways to eight. An exceptional way to start the New Year!

  • Diamond Head Scenic Byway: The Lei Around Leahi
  • Maunalua-Makapuu Scenic Byway
  • Waikiki - Kauhale O Hookipa Scenic Byway
  • HWY 137 - The Red Road Scenic Byway

Hawai'i's Scenic Byways
Hawaii’s Scenic Byways Program showcases roads throughout Hawaii that have an important story to tell to both local residents and visitors. These roads hold more than what meets the eye —their archaeological, cultural, historic, natural, recreational and/or scenic qualities are of statewide and quite probably national significance. The byway sponsor groups manage their scenic byways to protect and enhance them through collaborations with government agencies and business and community groups.  Hawaii joined the National Scenic Byways Program in 2009, and participates with other U.S. States, National Parks and other Federal land agencies, Native American tribes as well as with Canada and Japan.
