Big Island 4 Wheeling

I'm from So Cal, will be coming to the big island this summer. Can any recommend any trails or cool places to go, that is not touristy?

Waipeo valley is about my favorite place to go on the big island. Need a 4x4 though. Renting a jeep? Hilo side has always seemed less touristy to me. Kona/ kohala coast has a lot more places to stay though. I like the drive from kona to waimea on the mountain road. And taking the old highway from waimea to Hilo is a great drive.

not sure you wanna go into Waipio valley on a rental JK unless it's equipped with mud terrains. R1 or Mana road is a little more dry.

south point is nice, just far. that being said, i would avoid doing anything ambitiously. tow companies run at least $1000 easily to recover your vehicle all the way out there and off-road.

There were a few rental jks down there today, just going to the beach was about dry so they were ok. I don't know about the rest of it though
