I walked to Diamond Head from my hotel on Waikiki about 2 miles, took an hour and I did the hike early in the morning, 6 AM to avoid the heat. The park entrance fee for "walker" $1 :-).
Hike to the summit is about 8/10 of a mile and depending on your fitness level, 30 minutes to an hour. My leisurely climb was 40 minutes and about 250 steps to reach the summit. The views are awesome but the hike down on rocky subsurface was harder than the hike up. :-)
