As far as accessible and visible waterfalls go among the islands of Hawaii, Manoa Falls ranks middle of the road, IMO... Having said that, the relatively easy trail (it gets harder and muddier the further up you go) is gorgeous....and since Oahu doesn't have a great number of accessible falls like Maui or Kauai, Manoa Falls is actually a very...

If you ever wanted to hike through a rainforest, take this hike. Its a short hike and gives a good feel of Hawaiian rainforest.

Worth the easy hike whether a tourist or local. I would definitely do this one again. The facilities are nice too.

The lush forest and undergrowth of ferns and vining plants are a wonder. The trail is wet and a bit slippery but very easy to maneuver if you take care. The falls are very nice, cascading on the rocks rather than falling from the top. Beautiful!

Came here early in the morning for a hike with the family, had to pay $5 to park. It was a quick hike up to the waterfall, water pressure was good coming down so it was pretty nice to see. Some people were in the water but we didn't go since we had a young child with us. It was... More

give it a go! Great walk and great spot to have a look at some great scenery so close to Waikiki. If you take the bus (# 5) , you'll have to hoof it to get there and back in time to catch the next bus, which runs about every 55 mins. Otherwise, take your time and aim for the... More

The forest that surrounds you as you walk to the base of the falls is beautiful and the sounds of the water flowing lovely to hear. The majority of the path has been well maintained with small rocks to help with traction on the muddy path - there are a couple of muddier sections that can be a bit slippery... More

Climbing to the base of the falls is only slightly challenging if you are in average condition. The reward is great when you get to the summit and see the water cascade down the 150' high rock dropoff. The scenery of the tropical rainforest plants along the trail makes the hike up and back quite interesting. While you're up there,... More

We hiked up to the falls on a day that had significant rain. Upside was a beautiful waterfall and much more water flowing than the pictures posted. Downside, the rain made it impossible for me to get a good waterfall image. It was $5 to park, and well worth it. We even saw a Jackson Chameleon on the hike.
