Hawai'i Big Island Belt Road (south)
« on: June 23, 2012, 08:21:19 pm »
Anyone ridden Hawaii's Big Island Belt Rd, rte. 11, south between Captain Cook and Hilo recently?  This road runs through the Volcanoes Nat'l Park.   I'm looking for riding conditions on that stretch for a 3 day counter-clockwise island circuit.

I've ridden Kona side-Hilo and back many times, both via rte 19 and Saddle Rd but never the southern route, and familiar with the "peculiar" riding conditions in Hawaii.....mostly very good with occasional bits a little hairy and nearly always quite windy. 

Wondering what the current situation on the route through Volcanos Nat'l Park, etc is like.

Any advice is welcome.
