“Absolutely worth the view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

We were warned by others about the intensity of this hike, so we traveled early in the morning to beat the direct sunlight. we started the hike at about 7:30am so the climate was perfect. It is a workout getting to the top, and the bridge portion a little scary but it is well worth the views at the top! Would recommend for anyone to try it, as it is truly a once in a lifetime experience

“Suggestion: Avoid to go after 12pm :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

I went to see koko Head Crater yesterday. It's worth a try.
Good points: views
Bad point: Hard hiking

Try to go early in the morning. Get a gallon of water! :)

“Booty kicking hike, with beautiful views.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

I am not ashamed to admit, this hike kicked my booty, but once you reach the top, it is worth every step. The hike provides beautiful views of Hawaii Kai, Hanama Bay and Diamond Head.

“Very cool”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

This is a very unique place, everyone who wants to have a workout should go there. Many many steps up a mountain, however, you should go there either early in the morning or at night when it is cooler, as you will be in the plain sun while running or walking up the hill and it can get very hot!

“OMG!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

It is the hardest "hike" I have ever done. Makes Diamond Head seem like a stroll. I did this to celebrate turning 50. Thanks to my friend, I didn't give up at 300 steps, took my time, and made it to the top. It does reward you with fantastic views - especially Hanauma Bay. Make sure you go early, take water, and take your time. It took us 3 hours!
