The ascent up Diamond Head begins. Notice that there is little shade and the path leads to many switchbacks winding its way up. For your safety and to prevent erosion be sure to stay on the trail and not make your own shortcut. Diamond Head estimated to be 200,000 years old and was created in a series of eruptions from the Ko’olau Volcano which has been extinct for 150,000 years. Other famous Hawaii landmarks created by this “Honolulu Volcanic Series” are Punchbowl Crater, Hanauma Bay, Koko Head and Manana Island.
