Great trail for all levels! Lots of people but not crazy crowded (I hiked this Jan 3,2019) Easy to hike but it was a great workout! I’m in good shape but was out of breath by the time I got to the top.

Stair master with great view. It can get hot so make sure you have water and maybe a shave ice at the end.

Great hike for the family! It is moderately difficult because it is all uphill to get to the top, but if taken slow and steady it is for the whole family. Shaded in many spots, hot and sunny in others. Paved, but not even in most of the trail. Would not recommend strollers bc it is uneven and there are 99+ stairs you take to get to the top. The views are breathtaking though! Very heavily trafficked, but the flow goes pretty well and it wasn’t bothersome.

Great to run as it’s a good workout with the hills, but not that interesting to walk around.

love this trail!!! get a good workout in! if you run the trail you can do it in maybe 15-20 minutes maybe less! it gets pretty congested with people though

Fairly easy, entirely paved. The only thing to consider is the fact that there’s no shade and you can climb another extra 99 stairs to the top. Beautiful views, but if not reached very early, it gets hot and crowded. Parking by car $5 or walk-in $1/person. Drop off at entrance is also possible.

This walk circumnavigates the Diamond Head Crater. There are several cool views and 2 beaches that are worth checking out. Good for a afternoon leg stretch.

What a workout! The views certainly take away any agony endured given the elevation changes. A must if fitness and views fit you!

Found it to be very easy. it's not a hike it's basically all paved. beautiful view from the top. very busy.

Great morning run!

Why is this rated moderate? It is a paved road! Only one optional detour is not paved. The path inside is much more interesting.

Bring water. It's rough in flip flops as part of the trail is rock/dirt. Great views.

Randonnée urbaine

The road around the crater is really easy, most of it being on paved road. Not sure it's really worth the time. The hike to the top of Diamond Head is a better investment your time.

Amazing views of Waikiki from the top. Easy, paved hike with lots of steps.

Awesome views but if you have bad knees, it's rough to get to the top. Go early to beat the annoying tourists

More of a walk than a hike, but it was still neat to see some nice houses and the ocean.

I live about five streets from the opening to Diamond Head Crater so I've done this hike a few times and always enjoy it! I can always count on this hike to be dry, sunny and to stay clean..other than a little sweat. This goes a long way considering a lot of the hikes in Hawaii are rainy and muddy.
It's $1 to walk in and $5 to park, so if you can walk in through the tunnel I'd suggest it. I would also recommend getting a snack of the fresh pineapple at the truck parked inside the crater, very refreshing.
There is a split in the path after a lighted tunnel that you turn right to go up steep stairs or turn left to curve around the hill to a lower lookout before climbing a separate flight of stairs. I prefer to turn left when going up, then go down through the inside of the military bunker, which pops you out going down those steep stairs.
I love the views and the adventure from this hike, I've even seen some whales too.

It's a great hike when it's not too crowded. Beautiful views and gusty winds from the top. Not much to look at from the base, but those stairs are killer!

Arrive before 8AM, or parking lot will be crowded and your hike will be hot, take water, as it is a climb. The views are amazing! In Honolulu, a must do!
