Commute from Kailua Kona to Hilo - doable?

Jump to last reply

I need to be in Hilo for 2 days but would prefer to stay in the Kona side. I think car rental companies now allow driving their car on the saddle road. I am thinking of just commuting from my hotel in the Kona side to Hilo for 2 days. Or fly into Kona spend one night there and commute to Hilo spend one night there and drop off the rental car in Hilo and catch my inter island flight back to Honolulu from Hilo. I'm going to the Big Island for business and will be by myself.

Is this a crazy idea? I haven't driven along the saddle road but I'm guessing that it will be around 2 hour drive from Kona to Hilo.
