Diamond Head Trail gives a great view of Waikiki and the lighthouse in Honolulu. This is an easy and kid friendly hike. Just not a lot of shade-if any….I would try to go early morning or when it’s not so hot. The beginning is paved, but then goes into an uneven trail. So no strollers are not recommended. Plus there are lots of stairs at the end.
Directions: I use navi and put in Diamond Head Rd, Honolulu.
Parking is $5 and if you walk in it’s $1. There’s parking outside the crater which is free, but an extra hike up. Our first time we did this, we parked at the college nearby. You will have to walk through the narrow tunnel….just be careful!
The trail itself is very easy to follow and there’s always a ton of tourists! Then you have some that like to run it.
For some reason bugs were out this time so I recommend bringing bug spray. Also bring water! It’s really hot! Other then that, there’s not much to this hike.
