5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

Nice look out and trip up. Everything in Hawaii has lush forest and beautiful flora and fauna. Recommend checking it out.

“Worth the effort.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

We picked the worst day of our trip for this walk, absolutely lashed rain. But still worth the effort. Walk not too difficult although some level of fitness required. Would not recommend the bus from Waikiki, takes forever.

“Worth every step”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

Must wear sneakers or hiking shoes the walk at times is on very uneven pavement there are also two areas with numerous steps. Bring a bottle of water and your camera the views are breath taking

“Diamond Head”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

This is well worth the hike and the views are absolutely spectacular. My best tip is to do it early, we went up mid morning and although it was winter you certainly were warm by the time you were half way up. Take a bottle of water as well you will need it. Keep a slow and steady pace and the views won't disappoint.

“An easy climb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

My family went all the way to the top of Diamond Head and there were plenty of small children and older adults who walked the entire trail with no problems. This trail is perfect for taking pictures.
