West Maui Natural Area Reserve (Lihau Section)



Lihau Section is the driest of the four sections of the West Maui Natural Area Reserve, it is a steep-sloped volcanic remnant that extends from dry leeward lowlands to a wet summit with cliffs on all sides. The 1988 survey indicated that the summit of Lihau remains ungulate-free. A rare grassland and shrubland occur near the lower boundaries of the Reserve, and many rare plants are known from Lihau.
