The Insider’s Guide to Healthy Hawaii: Fitness at Bryan Clay Exercise Park

Medically reviewed in November 2021

Sometimes, you just don’t feel like working out in a crowded, stuffy and dimly-lit gym. When that’s the case, there’s no need to skip your workout. We’ve got a great alternative for you—head to the Bryan Clay Exercise Park, named for the 2008 Olympic decathlon gold medalist alum from Kaneohe.

It’s located along the mauka slope of the Diamond Head State Monument, right near the entrance to the crater. The park officially opened in October 2013, and has nine separate stations in which you can literally do dozens of different body-weight resistant exercises.

Adjacent to the park is the Fort Ruger Pathway, a 1.3-mile paved trail. Completed in conjunction with the park, the path includes picnic and rest areas along the way. Also, just across the street is Bark Park, an off-leash dog park.

The Bryan Clay Park is at a great location that allows you to inter-mix some weight training when you’re walking, running, hiking or enjoying the Diamond Head area with your furry friend.

Location: Diamond Head State Monument Entrance, near the corner of Diamond Head Road and 18th Ave.

Features: Nine workout stations, 1.3-mile paved trail nearby, picnic areas, dog park nearby and restrooms at Kapiolani Community College.
