I head here when short on time and needing a quick run with a little bit of climb. This loop is intended to be run clockwise though I often see people going in the opposite direction. My only complaint is that part of this trail is actually just paved path or road, boo. But all in all it’s decent for being urban. On a clear day there are views of the waterfront/downtown and even with the crowds, it’s usually still peaceful and easy to maneuver.

Beautiful, quick and easy.

As those have already stated, the trail head is a mile and a half from the visitor's center where you start when snowshoeing. It wasn't overly crowded. Stunning views on a beautiful day. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Too many tourists, however the views at the top were breathtaking. Definitely worth it.

Beautiful waterfall, but this is not a actual trail. The falls are right off the road. Parking and bathroom facilities available.

This trail is spectacular and is definitely worth the walk especially is it’s basically the only falls trail open right now. Definitely do it clockwise.

Great trail, lots of tourists though.

Gorgeous trail! We did this on a sunny day in March and it was perfect, plenty of traffic but not enough that it felt crowded

One of my favorite hikes. Great for beginner hikers or a quick daily walk in the woods. In the spring and summer I do this hike 3 to 4 times a week. Also going on a sunny morning it's a photographer's dream location.

This hike was gorgeous at the top with beautiful views of water and Waikiki. The only negative thing I could say is that this hike was definitely harder than other people have described. I am a runner and in great shape and this isn’t a walk in the park. I saw people in flip flops and Sandals and I was shocked. There are a lot of crowds and I would definitely recommend coming early.

Decent outing but the cliffs were a little underwhelming - even by southern ontario standards. Still made for an enjoyable hike

What a beautiful trail. Well marked path with lots of people using the trail. Not long but the top is amazing would definitely go again in the summer

Let me add some details. When people say get there early, 8:15 on a Sunday morning is not early (when we got there). The parking lot was full, several buses were parked and the place was jammed. We went back out and parked across the street from the entrance at the Community College Park lot. Easy walk in from there. For the actual hike, you basically queue up and march up the path/stairs. During the hike up and down you are single file because people are going both directions constantly. In the 1.5 miles up and down we probably passed 500 people? 1000? Just a lot of people. I prefer hikes where miles covered+dogs seen > number of people seen so this wasn’t for me. Still gave it three stars for the views and the fact that the queue actually moved at a decent speed. My wife also recommends using the bathrooms at the community college park as well since the bathrooms inside Diamond Head had lines out the door.

Beautiful view of the falls but trails are closed I heard till April. Sad I didn’t get to do the hike!

My wife and I hiked this and it was a great view from the top. It is relatively busy hike with numerous tourists, but worth it for the view.

Very slippery. Need spikes, very busy trail this weekend

Not a difficult hike at all. I did the 6 miles round trip, and it’s only 1k elevation change. The weather was amazing but they do call it hurricane ridge for a reason, it’s windy. Good amount of snow from the lodge to summit. Views are amazing, on a clear day, you can see Mt. Baker, Straight of Juan de Fuca, and awesome vistas from the Olympics. Highly recommend!!!

The place is certainly historic and an icon for the area, but it's not a trail I'd hike again with anyone given the number of tourists that frequent the area. Recommend any diamond head crater seekers to gauge the number of buses in the area before committing to the hike.

The views are great and would have been better with a sunrise but cloud cover didn't allow. Also, wear good shoes, lots of uneven terrain and stairs.

Beautiful but very popular expect to share the beautiful views. Trail is in good condition but still has areas that are muddy!

Very crowded. Go for the view at the top.

Instead of starting at the parking lot where the trail starts, we parked in the neighborhood past Diamond Head Rd. and started walking from there, which doubled the length of it (but not the elevation). This way is nice because you get to walk through the tunnel and don’t have to pay for parking.

Even though the hike is fairly easy and there are a lot of tourists, it’s extremely enjoyable. The terrain is constantly changing and presents you with little surprises. You wind up and around the mountain for most of the hike until you reach a few sets of steep, manmade stairs, and then scamper through a tower with a few levels before coming out the top. An amazing view of Waikiki and other parts of the island ensue.

My favorite part was running up the stairs, it was a good little workout. Even if you’re an avid hiker I highly recommend this one, it’s a perfect break from high intensity hikes yet still satisfying.

Great hike for young kids. My 4 year old handled it like a champ. A lot of traffic on a sunny day with the other gorge hikes still closed but worth it!!!

Easy hike for families with great views and scenery. Make sure you go down the canyon to the water and get a family photo! Well worth the stop. Not a lot of people in May.

Beautiful hike! Wear appropriate shoes-it was pretty muddy.

A good quick hike. I would definitely go early morning as our group went in the afternoon and it was very crowded and hot. But overall a good hike to see the island.

Nice short hike with 2 cool bridges to cross. Water is crystal clear.

Not a hike, but pretty waterfall. It didn’t feel as spectacular as Marymere falls.

You can literally drive up too or walk up too this waterfall it's so pretty!

Fun, fairly quick hike not far from Honolulu. Generally kid friendly. Highly recommended if you’re visiting in the area.
