You would not think this mid peninsula road that heads to the far west side, cutting right soon after beginning up to the plateau would bring to mind a French countryside dairy farming scene, but that's what you'll find. How serene riding through this tree covered road through the elevating valley to meadowlands and upward. The road isn't really wide so pay attention to on coming. I enjoyed the variety of cattle, the sheep, a few horses, and lots of greens on the ground and in the trees. You first arrive at the official vista point. Lots of picnickers everywhere, grab a parking space. There is a panoramic sign with great information that has been graffitied to death. The photo ops are incredible with Taravao in the hub where the peninsula pulls away from the main island. When the clouds are high, or gone the views from west to east are awesome. Then drive up the hill around a bend and walk up a trail to the optimum height to take in the fullness. The view is obscured by growth in some places. There is a giant tree up there. Very worth the drive.
