Diamond Head Trail - Points of Interest

We walk from Waikiki Beach to Diamond Head and back every other day. The above video shows a few short clips hiking this crater using my iPhone. Here are some points of interest along the trail:

* There are 74 concrete steps leading into the first tunnel
* The narrow tunnel is lighted and is 225 feet long
* Second stairway consisting of 99 steep steps
* The third level has a lighted spiral staircase with 52 stairs
* The last level has 54 metal stairs
* The summit of the crater are at an elevation of 761 feet

From the trailhead to the summit of Diamond Head Crater is 0.8 mile. Round trip is 1.6 miles. Walking from Waikiki Beach to the crater is 3 miles. So our trek is around 8 miles round trip. A pretty good workout!
