Haleakala Facts
Cinder Cone and South Rise from Kalahaku

Kalahaku overlook offers a sweeping view of the cinder cones that dot the valley floor of Haleakala. It is estimated that the last eruptions in the summit area may have taken place 700 to 900 years ago. This is difficult to determine because no eruptions in the summit area have been recorded in historic times or in early Hawaiian oral history. However, it is known that the last eruptions of Haleakala took place in about 1790, along the southwest rift zone. These eruptions originated along the flank of Haleakala, near the southern coast of the island, and formed La Perouse Bay.
