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

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!
