A world-famous landmark of the Hawaiian islands, Diamond Head Crater is O’ahu’s most popular hike among visitors. The busy trail is sometimes overwhelming, but the 360 degree views from the top of the crater’s walls make the trip worthwhile.  The 1.6 mile round-trip hike can be rather tiring, with the second half of the trail resulting in numerous sets of stairs.  The majority of the hike is in direct sunlight, so be sure to bring plenty of water. Due its popularity, we recommend getting to the park when the gates open at 6am to grab a parking space. If no parking is available, visitors can park down below at KCC, but then will have to walk almost an additional mile to reach the trailhead. The last entrance to the hike is at 4:30pm with the gates closing shortly after at 6pm.
