People tend to check in during these times:
Come early. And be prepared for mega-cardio.
Great hike and is good for exercise and to get back into shape! The view is pretty good, too. :) So it is your reward for reaching the top.
So worth making it to the top!
The ultimate stairmaster! I was sore for days, but definitely worth the view!
It's good common courtesy to give right of way to the people coming down.
Don't forget to bring a bottle of water and leave slippers at home
Park at the Koko Trail Head. Walk the path all the way to the top of the crater. Take your phone and check in with Foursquare from the top. You're the king of the world!
Make it up and down in 45 minutes!
There's shame in going around the trestle
Amazing view from the top! It was quite the reward after running up the whole trail.
One of the best views on Oahu and great cardio! It's an easy trail but the hike is long and step. Being water and wear as little as possible.
Best to go before the sun comes up or right before it goes down.
Bring lots of hydration!
Take your time and as many breaks as you need. Careful on the way down.
Advanced trail, highly elevated so air is thin making it hard to breath. Bring a bottle water and don't be afraid to take as many breaks as u need.
Don't forget your water?
The go early tip is not to be ignored. There is no shade and heat makes it that much harder. Bring water. It may only be a mile, but a strenuous one (even challenging for an athlete)
When going up/down, try not to take any break until you reach the top/bottom.
Early morning 6-10 is a great time to go. Or 4-630 in the afternoon. Or anytime on an overcast day
Beware of bees by the bridge
Bring water, lots of it. Pace yourself and take breaks. And take lots of photos!
You'll be hurting afterwards but well worth it! Takes about 45-60min to go up.
Amazing views. Go early (around 6-7am) to beat other people trying to go up, since it gets busy with tourist
Take your time, enjoy the challenge, and celebrate your accomplishments big or small!
One step at a time... WELL worth the journey!
Challenge your wind on the way up & your agility on the way down. Oh, & don't stop at the end of the tracks. The view is on the other side!!
If you are freaked out about the bridge you can go around on the dirt trail on the right going up and left on the way down... Idk if someone said this already but everyone forgets
Careful on the way down Koko Head can bite back
30 minutes to the top.
If u make it in 20 minutes there's a 6 pack of Heinekin waiting for you! LOL
Awesome hike. Good for anyone around 12 and up. View from the top is splendid. If you're in really good shape, try and scale it in 20 mins
Bring water and pace yourself! It's worth it! Go for the sunrise and bring some food for the top. The hike down is a bit strenuous on the knees so bring hiking poles if you can!
Last third of the ascent is the toughest but the view is well worth the effort. If you're moderately in shape, you'll be able to make it to the top with some honest breaks in between.
Crazy workout! Get ready to feel the burn in your quads plus every other surface of your expose skin. Feels like torture. Bring a towel and water. Watch your step coming down as it can get slippery.
BRING WATER! I got very dehydrated on the way up because I did not bring enough... Also, may not be good for those who are not in shape
The pink section is a little hairy and scary...be extremely careful w every step.
Use the trail that goes alongside the bridge if you don't want to go over the bridge. Also, when you reach the top of the stairs, make sure to take the trail up for a 360 view!
Going to DH in a few
The trail is really hard but this is the best place for look the sunrise!!!!! Love it!!!! 20-25 minuts to be on the top!!!! 13 minuts my time:))) try to be more Fast if u can
Use a camelback on all hikes. Frees your hands up for better balance and pace.
Make sure to bring water!
If you can climb to the top in 15 minutes I'm impressed!
You know this is serious when you don't see the same horde of little Japanese tourist girls from diamond head anymore
You will feel the pain for 3 days.
꼭 가봐 ㅎ 살빼는데는 최고 겠다 ㅋㅋㅋ!!
계단 간격이 넓고 꽤나 경사 지기때문에 조심! 무릎 안좋은 사람들 진짜 조심 ..
