NAME: North Shore Cliffs National Natural Landmark
SIZE: 26,926 acres

DESCRIPTION: The major episode of volcanism creating Molokai is among the most ancient in the Hawaiian Island chain. There are no finer exposures of these ancient volcanic rocks than along the North Shore Cliffs of this island. These cliffs and adjacent valleys and uplands are therefore geologically significant. The physical features of Molokai, including the North Shore Cliffs, are considered to be of prime importance to geologists in piecing together the story of how the Hawaiian Islands were formed.
