This is a great thing to do! I saw people of all ages as it is fairly easy, but still need to be physically capable of a moderately strenuous hike. It can be crowded, but it doesn't interfere too much. View from the top is really amazing of the ocean and back into the island of all the buildings and... More

I completed the trail in a total of 50 minutes going up and coming back down with a 15 minute break at the top. This trail is very busy so you're limited to how fast you can go because you're always catching up to people and it's hard to pass larger groups. I've seen people of all ages completing this...

Decided to take this trip to see the history of the islands. The self-guided tour was great. Did take some walking and effort to complete the full walk. This would be harder if the heat was full on. The walk is a little hard at times, but the views of the island and the North shore are great. The history... More

Such a great thing to see and do. Walk all the way there from Waikiki if you're fit and want to kill a couple of hours, or catch the local bus and climb the volcanic rim. The view from the top is well worth the effort, but maybe don't attempt this if your fitness or knees aren't good. Free fun... More

Took the hike and what a beautiful view. Got some great photos. Make sure you come early so you won't have to fight the crowds. I'm glad we did this hike.

A must for any visitor to Honolulu. We caught the local bus to Diamond Head and pleased we grab some refreshments at the reception area before making our way up the Head. This will keep you fit, its certainly more of a climb than I was expecting, but when you get to the top what amazing views.

We took the 23 bus from Waikiki and the driver showed us the stop to get off at the entrance to the park. It's about a 10 minute walk from there to the actual car park and where you pay your entrance fee. We found it pretty easy, sealed track for part of the way and then pretty uneven surface... More
