Get in[edit]

Cross-Mountain Routes:

Interstate H3: To get on this route (Aiea and Halawa Heights are the closest towns), look for the H3 exit (Exit 13A from Interstate H1 east, and Exit 13B from Interstate H1 West), or you can stay on Interstate H201 and take Exit 1C to Kaneohe. Much faster than the other mauka routes to Windward Coast because there is no traffic lights, and plus you can drive 60 miles per hour and not 55 miles per hour. Recommended but may take a while if you don't live in Aiea or Pearl City.

Pali Highway (Route 61):, still has a bunch of traffic lights that will interrupt you on the way to the Pali Highway tunnel. Great highway if you want to stop and take photos of the scenery (Kaneohe and Kailua are in there too!). But has a fewer traffic lights unlike Likelike Highway. Take Exit 21B if from Interstate H1 west, and Exit 21A if from eastbound side of Interstate H1.

Likelike Highway (Route 63):, only recommended if you are not in a hurry to get to Kaneohe from Honolulu. A bunch of traffic lights will interrupt your drive on Likelike Highway. So avoid taking that route unless you need direct access to Route 83 after going through the underpass of Interstate H3.

Other Routes:

Kalanianaole Highway (Route 72):, from southeast Honolulu, round the southeast corner of the island. Scenic.

Kamehameha Highway (Route 83):, from North Shore, down the eastern coast of the island.
