You can't get a better view of Honolulu... very rewarding view if you take your time to climb it. Take your time to read about its geology... it becomes even more interesting!

View from the top was spectacular however it was hard work getting there. Go early in the morning as you beat the crowds and it is a lot cooler

This is a bit of a hike. Bring water and take your time. Make sure you hold on to your hat because it gets windy up top. But the view is so worth the trip.

We paid the $5 to park. Totally up to you, I was glad we did, saved some added hiking. The view was beautiful on the way up as well as at the top. I was worried about the tunnel, but it was lighted and not really that long. We went around instead of taking the circular stairs, as I was worried about those also. It was crowded, but still a must do.
