Difficult climb. I recommend going on an overcast day since there is virtually no shade.

Great hike , relatively short. 37 min up , 20 min down. Zero shade path is in full sun.

Great legs workout! Go early to avoid crowds and the hit. Its very dusty and there is no shade. Great views at the top.

Great workout. Tough climb but worth the views from the top.

amazing vistas. don't attempt unless you're physically fit.

Very steep and challenging up and down.
Breathtaking views from the above. Recommended for the sunrise.

If you are looking for a challenging hike with good exercise, then this is a good one. Coming down is slightly dangerous. I opted to do the crab walk with at least 3 points of contact because I felt it was too steep going down in the dark (with a flashlight.) The view at the top is pretty good, but I would much rather prefer a hike that is more scenic along the way. I personally wouldn't do it again, but that's just me.

Went here right after diamond head. Started right before 830 AM, took me about 1:45 to complete the entire trail. Worth the hike up, views were amazing. It's okay to go slow - I was passed by many, but as long as you are physically fit, you will make it! I took many breaks, drank lots of water. I'm not used to hiking in this type of heat! Took an hour to get to the top, only 35 to get down. Wear good shoes - I didn't pack my actual hiking shoes, only sneakers, and my ankles wished I had.
