Maui is the second largest of the Hawaiian islands and, like the others, has a volcanic origin. The last eruption occurred in 1790. While its most prominent volcano, Haleakalā, is considered dormant, further eruptions are certainly possible. Maui is known as the "Valley Isle," for the large valley between its two mountains, Haleakalā and Mauna Kahalawai.
