    lots of switchbacks and mostly in the shade until the stairs. picnic area before the hard part begins. stairs were very steep over the last half mile. views at the top of diamond head, koko crater, and waimanolo. we started at 8am and had parking and time at the top by ourselves, but we passed a lot of people on our way down and parking was full down the street when we left.

    hot, crowded, and a bit of a scramble but short and great views at the top

    the drive itself to the trailhead was pretty. the trail has views along the way of diamond head, and goes through a bamboo forest which was cool. it was completely dry when we went 4/3/19. a beginner hiker and small dog made it up and back easily in an hour.
