Don’t underestimate the hike

Just because it’s rated as a moderate hike does not mean it’s easy.  The path is steep at points and there are quite a few stairs along the way.  This is not a paved trail that is wheelchair or stroller accessible and should be treated with respect.  The trail will lead you around the ridge and up to an incredible lookout so take your time and rest when you feel the need.

You even get to go through a tunnel to get to the other side of the crater.

Find Diamondhead:

  • Restrooms are available at the beginning of the hike.
  • There are water fountains available to fill your water bottles.
  • There are picnic tables and a pavilion at the beginning of the hike for a picnic lunch.
  • Tickets are required for parking and admittance to the state park. You can reserve your tickets here.
