Southwest of Lihue and northeast of Poipu on Kauai, the private Kipu Ranch has a nine mile ATV route. The route is only accessible via guided tour, but the lands are truly spectacular (used for filming jungle scenes in Jurassic Park and Raiders of the Lost Ark). Kipu Ranch Adventures has a permit to guide ATV tours on the ranch lands. They rent ATV and provide helmets.
Northeast of Waimea and southeast of Kukuihaele on the Hamakua Coast, the Waipio All Terrain Vehicle Adventures is a guided route along Waipio Ditch through some of the most lush tropical flora, clandestine mountain streams and waterfalls, a temperate climate and simply awesome views of majestic Waipio Valley and Mauna Kea.
North of Waimea and southeast of Kapaau on the Big Island, ATV Outfitters of Hawaii offers guided tours in the beautiful North Kohala area near the oldest volcano on the Big Island. The area is lush green countryside. There are scenic guided tours riding through private ranchlands, along the edge of spectacular sea cliffs, lush tropical rainforests and historical sites.
Southeast of Kona on the Big Island, the route to Papakolea Beach (aka Green Sand Beach) is popular with ATV riders and OHV drivers. Papakolea Beach is located at South Point and is accessed by the rough South Point Road (aka Ka Lae Road). This beach is also known as Mahana Beach and incorrectly as Puu Mahana.
Southwest of Lihue and north of Poipu on Kauai, there are miles of ATV trails to explore in the Koloa area and in the rugged terrain of Kahili Mountain. Access to these lands is provided only from Kauai ATV Tours.
West of Hanapepe and east of Waimea on Kauai, there are 13 miles of ATV trails on Makaweli Ranch with steep hills and vistas over the Hanapepe Valley. Access to this land is provided by G&R ATV Mountain Tours.
