Wear comfy shoes. The climb is not over-taxing. If the long staircase appears daunting, you can take the exit route to the top.
A fun hike with a great view.
Take your time up this hike, but as you get to the tunnel it gets crowded as people are going up and others coming down. Watch your step going up the steep steps.
Great hike to start the day. The outlook on top is congested with tourist - take a pic can't linger too much.
an easy walk that looks tough
Gotta hike the volcano
The trek up there is a not easy but worth it after its over, for the views of Honolulu. And worth walking down and passing every one walking up. Would do this again! Bring water!
The hard way offers a couple extra views, and a trip through one of the buildings. I suggest the hard climb.
If you are here to get a "work out" don't come when the park first opens (at least not on Thursday that's when I came), unless you want to drown in a sea of tourists..🐠🐟🙋🏻🐋🐳🐬
Great views and a must if you haven't been up before. I reached the summit in under 30 mins without stopping. Go early because it gets very crowded and is quite annoying to hike with many people.
Awesome views. Hike to the top is half an hour and fairly easy. Make sure you take the stairs all the way to the top
A must do in Ohau. A medium level hike. Meaning younger kids (above 5yo) can do it but no one with mobility problems. A local told me they need to send paramedic 2 or3 tomes a week. View is AMAZING.
$1 entrance fee!
Wow. What a view.
Beautiful place to watch the sunrise
Sunrise from Diamond Head is magical. Get there at 5:50; gate opens at 6. It'll be dark out, but it's a simple hike. Do it on the first day, when you can use your jet lag hours to wake up early.
Beautiful view. Parking very limited and you'll only know spaces have filled up once you arrive at entrance. Some parking before tunnel but advisable to keep your cars at home.
Keep climbing. It's worth it!
Worth it. Whatever it takes for you to do this, don't miss it. The views are SPECTACULAR!
A great hike! Go to the top, bring plenty of water, wear close-toed shoes. Absolutely worth the trek for breathtaking views of Oahu. WWII sites an added bonus. Bring the camera!
Make sure you have on your best walking shoes! Once you get to the top the view is very clear and picturesque. Worth a few hours! We will definitely hike it without the kids next time.
Bring plenty of water, you're going to need it! Also watch out for the Japanese tourists in heels, they may take a tumble. But be sure to go all the way to the top. The view is incredible. STAIRS!!
again. for 300 times
Hike earlier in the day to avoid heat exhaustion. There are cabs available at the trailhead.
Amazing hike, great view. They sell cold water bottles, if you forget to bring one. Also, cold smoothies. Accessible by The Bus from Waikiki.
Brilliant views after a mile long hike up. First third is paved, then hard packed trail with gentle incline. The bunkers built into the hill are an interesting site!
Water, Hat, Sunscreen.
Nice view, don't go if your tired or don't want to be tired. Bring ice cold waters.
Bring water and wear comfortable shoes.
Bring your intestinal fortitude!
Bring the wifi router.Take a nice view and check in there.Wear the running or trecking shoes.
I don't need to leave any more tips, I already got one here this morning.
No matter what Sgt. Security says or some Charley Ching Chong does, in America, we drive on the right side of the road!!
Worth the 2 mile round trip hike including 50 flights of stairs
It's a big dirt pit.
Challenging hike to the top. Stunning views.
Great view over Waikiki on top I was here last week that hike was crazy and fun. Wear comfortable footwear, no slippers and bring some iced cold water.
Great work out going up! I suggest do not bring little kids, this is hard climb for them. Once up there, the view was awesome! Bring water to drink!
When you get closer to the top, the path splits to the left and right. Go right and you are greeted with "judgment steps". Extremely steep and challenging, but shorter in distance. Test yourself!
Hey, friend! I hope you brought water
If you don't like long hikes up numerous stairs that are a pain. Do not do...
You should definitely bring a bottle of water and wear tennis shoes! The terrain is rocky, steps are steep, and some entrances are very low (you must crawl to get to the very top). But well worth it!
After going through the first set of stairs and the tunnel, there's a path to the left that's easier if you're feeling gassed.
Amazing! Wonderful view of Honolulu city from the top! Just be careful going up.
BRING WATER!!! There are plenty of places to rest so don't be afraid of the trek. Totally worth it once you are at the top.
Must due in Oahu
Takes about 30-45 minutes to hike up. I would usually say go early but there are big tour groups that also go at the opening time. The top is pretty empty once they leave.
Go early and bring water!
