Haleakala

Haleakala is a massive volcano which forms 75% of the Island of Maui. It is thought to have last erupted in the 1600s and may not be extinct. The interior crater is over 11 km (7 miles) across and some 800 m. ( 2,600 feet) deep. There is a road to the summit and bicycle tours down are a popular tourist attraction.
