The photo above showing Koko Crater in Hawaii was taken in November 2004 from a trail that leads to Makapuu Point, the easternmost tip of the island of Oahu. Koko Crater is located east of Honolulu, Hawaii. This interesting volcanic feature is very accessible and has many great vantage points -- trails that lead to the rim and to a botanical garden inside the crater. Like nearby Diamond Head, Koko Crater is a tuff ring, which was formed by the interaction of pyroclastic material, such as magma, and water. At 1,207 feet (368 m), Koko Crater is the tallest tuff ring in Hawaii.
