Excerpt from Occasional Papers of the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum of Polynesian Ethnology and Natural History, Vol. 7: No. II, With Plates XX-XXIII; An Archaeological Survey of Haleakala
Haleakala, which is substantially coextensive with east Maui, is the giant volcanic cone... of the largest inactive crater in the world. It rises from the sea to a height of feet, culminating in a jagged wall 20 miles in circumference which forms the encircling rim of the crater broken only at Koolau Gap and Kaupo Gap. The ¿oor of this crater, an area of about 15 square miles, lies 1000 to 3000 feet below the rim and forms a base from which rise a series of ancient cinder cones overspread by lava ¿ows of various ages.
