The Pleistocene West Maui shield volcano is deeply dissected by spectacular steep-sided valleys that extend from the north and east into the summit caldera. Late-stage cinder cones and lava flows on the W flank were mapped as Recent by Stearns (1946). Mullineaux et al. (1987) indicated that the youngest lava flows are more than 25,000 years old, and the youngest K-Ar dates obtained are older than one million years (Sherrod et al., 2007).
