Description If you look carefully far down below you can see people hiking along Sliding Sands Trail on the crater floor at about 8000 feet above sea level high on Maui. 'At a still later time volcanism again increased in intensity, and a series of lavas and cinder cones (Plates 30, 31) known as the Hana volcanic series was erupted. Like the Kula rocks before them, the Hana lavas were erupted principally from a line of fissures that crossed the mountain from southwest to northeast. This line of fissures, forming the southwest and northeast rift zones of the volcano, crosses the crater. From the observation station at the crater rim a line of cinder cones and lava vents can be seen extending diagonally across the crater and up the far side. The original floors of the eroded valleys have been deeply buried by the lavas and cinder cones that form the present floor of the crater and of the Koolau and Kaupo gaps (Plate 29). The ridge that formerly separated the heads of the two valleys has largely been buried by the flood of later lavas, but part of it can still be seen projecting southward into the 'crater' south-southwest of Hanakauhi Peak. The old lavas in the ridge are cut by many nearly vertical dikes, which are the congealed lava fillings of fissures many of which once fed surface lava flows.' information source nps.gov
