About 5 miles off shore from East Maui is the uninhabited island of Kahoolawe, another old volcano, which forms the shallow profile seen here on the horizon.
McGregor's Point has a lot of interesting structures that attract geology students from the University of Hawaii to this part of the island. Here we see John Sinton explaining how one can interpret the motion of a lava flow at this site from the appearance of rocks that lie beneath the lava flow.
From here you can continue on to Stop 3.
