Hike and Discover Diamond Head

The silhouette of Diamond Head is one of Hawaii's most famous landmarks. The 300,000 year old broad and squat "tuff cone' forms the eastern boundary of Waikiki and is instantly recognizable from almost any direction.

With a panoramic view of the whole southern shore of Oahu, stretching from Koko Head on the east, across Waikiki, Ala Moana, Pearl Harbor and out to Waianae on the west, the summit was an important military observation site. The advent of sophisticated radar technology has eliminated the military usefulness of the site, but that means the crater and its military trails to the summit are now open to the public for a wonderful hike. The park is within a 15 minute drive from most parts of Honolulu, so jump in your car or onto The Bus and get some exercise while enjoying some of the best views on Oahu.

The hike is short (under 2 hours round trip at a leisurely pace with a fair amount of relaxing at the summit) and not overly strenuous.

It is suitable for families looking for a quick weekend activity, but leave strollers and other kiddy vehicles in the car. The steep stairways towards the top of the trail and the always hot sun provide some physical challenge, but the views and cooling breeze are so rewarding that it is worth the sweat and huffing and puffing. The trail is narrow and can get pretty crowded, so I recommend going early in the morning for maximum enjoyment. Read more Hike and Discover Diamond Head...
