Enjoyed this hike 1.6 miles in total return. Some is quite steep and Iran’s won’t make the whole way. Nice views at the top and great smoothies at the bottom . Not a long activity but worth a morning.

This is not for the timid, or those with mobility issues. The hike was simply beautiful, but was strenuous for us , even though we often hike in the New England mountains. After a paved start to the climb, the trail becomes more rugged and...More

Diamond Head hike is a must-do on Oahu. Definitely one of my favorites! Depending on the individual, the hike can either be short or long (lots of places to stop along the way). It normally takes me and my family about 25 minutes to reach...More

It isn't a difficult hike, make it to the top if you can. I would say it is for someone who is used to hiking and can do lots of stairs. And wear good shoes, this is not for flip flops. Some people run it...More

Take your water bottle! We read a review and it said its not that far up, but it is a bit of a hike and water is a must. Excellent views!

We all made the walk to the top. Well worth the effort, spectacular views. A challenging walk but well defined pathways and stairs. Make sure you take water and wear comfortable shoes!

A couple of the guidebooks said this was a good hike for beginners--but that is a flat out LIE! This is a challenge--steep and uneven terrain. Worth it if you can do it.

Good workout to get to the top. Rewarded with spectacular views and humbling enormity of the crater.

It's a short hike up the trail to the top of Diamond Head, but it can be a bit tough as it winds up & there are a number of stairs but worth the effort. If you take your time & don't do it in...More

The tunnel is a nice cool off before you get back outside. Go early in the morning, there is less people, but it will be busy. We mingled our way up to the top with people passing us, and coming back down. Enjoy your trip... More

We are in our 60’s and did it easily and saw many people with baby back packs. Also many people much older. They went slowly and made it fine. Go early in the morning. Less crowded and cooler. Bring water. Take your time... More
