After a butt-kicking hike up Koko Head (and a day for my glutes to recover) Diamond Head was a cake walk. Still a bit rocky in part, a great view and piece of history when you reach the top. There is parking onsite for a small fee, or there are also parking lots around the base of the crater if you want more of a walk.
Be sure to bring water with you and some good shoes (no slippahs). When you're almost at the top, you'll reach a fork in the trail. To your right will be a set of concrete stairs, to your left will be some benches and another set of stairs. We chose left, because I needed a break. This brings you to the back side of the summit and the top of the pillboxes.
