Tips

A popular, family-friendly, paved walking or biking trail around the park with wonderful views of Honolulu. This path does not enter the state park. Accessibility: There is one designated accessible space in the paved parking lot off of Diamond Head Road at the east end of the trail. It is van-accessible with a striped access aisle. The trail surface is paved with mostly concrete (with railings near steep drop-offs), and typically at least 5 feet wide. The most accessible portion of the trail is the first 0.5 miles, or from the 1.8 through 2.8-mile mark when heading clockwise. The estimated grade is moderately steep (8% or less) except for very steep (over 12%) uphill and downhill sections between about 0.6 through 1.7 and 2.9 through 3.9 miles when going clockwise. Trail goers using wheelchairs/mobility equipment or strollers may need assistance along this entire route due to the consistent sections above a 5% grade (especially if using manual equipment). There are benches and picnic tables along the route for resting

There are bathrooms and water fountains throughout the park.

Mountain bikingGreat!

My friend lives about a mile from Diamond Head and I have hiked it twice. On this trip I wanted to do something different. I rented a bike from the Biki Bike stand and took the bike around Diamond Head. It was a great bike hill. There’s a little incline but what goes up must come down so there’s a little down hill as well

This is not the hike to climb Diamond Head, it is a public road that goes around Diamond Head. I did this in the early evening and it was a pleasant enough 4 mile walk around Diamond Head. I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to do this trail, but if you are in the area it is decent exercise with some interesting things to view along the way.

HikingGreat!

This gives a really wonderful view of Honolulu. Did this with my family (parents are not in super great shape) and we all did it and had a great time. You could easily make this into a run if you chose to do so, as we saw a few people doing that along the way. Great temperatures as always. For a lot of the trail, you will be exposed to the sun with very little cover so be sure to bring sunscreen.

This is literally a walk around the park. Don't confuse it with the Diamond Head State Monument trail as we did. The Diamond Head State Monument trail leads you to the summit of Diamond Head. Alltrails refers to it as the Diamond Head Summit trail.

This is a road route that can be driven. With that being said I love to walk and enjoyed it very much! Water, sunscreen and a cooling towel did the trick.

Go in the morning. Very little shade and miserable hot if you go mid day. View is amazing and it’s even more amazing to look at diamond head from afar and think you hiked it lol. Worth it

Hiking

All the reviews seem to be about the Diamond Head Trail, not the All Trails trail for this hike, which is a flat walk AROUND the crater on the outside. The hike was more of a hitch-hike than an actual hike, you are on the side of the road pretty much the whole time. You get close to the lighthouse which is cool, but I’d recommend just driving around rather than “hiking” it. It was also super hot after about 5 minutes. I wouldn’t do this hike again.
