200 / Saddle Road

State Highway 200, also known as Ala Mauna Saddle Road or simply Saddle Road, is a very scenic drive. Road reaches a maximum elevation of 2.062m (6,765ft), at Humuula Saddle. It is 52.7 mi (84.8 km) long and links downtown Hilo and the junction with
Hawaii Route 190 near Waimea. Wild animals and birds can be a hazard by running across the road - drive cautiously. Unfortunately it features dangerously unpredictable weather. There are areas on the road with no cell service, though call boxes have been placed along the highway. There are no gas stations or stores or manned places to get help - take the number of an island tow company with you in case you need help.
