2nd time I have done this scenery lovely, some beautiful trees and foliage, birds are always nice to look for, ground a bit rugged at times, September waterfall conditions disappointing, area for viewing could be improved especially when there are a lot of people viewing. I personally enjoyed it.

I did this hike an afternoon and it was fairly easy. As it was September the falls was not running at its best but it was still worn a visit. Great to experience some natural Oahu.

When it rains - its M.U.D.D.Y. Be careful not to fall in the slippery red mud, this may stain on your clothing permanently! Otherwise this is a beautiful hike to a beautiful waterfall. May take 45mins-1hr

Easy & fun beginners hike. Saw lots of families, pets, elderly, etc on the trail. As usual- need decent walking shoes. The trail was pretty wet when we went so expect to get a little muddy and of course sweaty. Whole trail is shaded and surrounded by lush green forest. At the top there is a very large waterfall with... More

This was my second trip to the falls, and it again confirmed its spot as one of my favorites. I enjoy hiking and getting out in nature - but I also don't want something that takes TOO long, is too strenuous, or too difficult to access. Manoa Falls is perfect. They have a great visitor center (with a cute gift... More

Loved this hike! It was an easy hike for the kids which includes a 6 year old. Gets a bit muddy as you get closer to the top so make sure you bring good walking shoes. No flip flops! We saw some hikers who were dressed very nice and wearing flip flops. Boy did they regret it. Lots of greeneries... More

Simply beautiful. Thick lush jungle. Unbelievable huge trees and plants. We walked through a bamboo forest along the way. Easy hike for us. I have three athletic teens and my wife and I are runners. It was slightly steep and wet in a few places. We did help a senior citizen on the way down. Most people including small kids... More

Manoa Falls is a beautiful walk. Takes about 30 minutes one way. Be prepared to walk on uneven, muddy and slippery surfaces. Recommend good footwear with traction.Wear comfortable clothing as it gets messy. Mosquito repellent is a must. Carry water and don't forget your camera. It a lush jungle with lots of vines intertwining in some areas making natural archways.I... More

Manoa Falls is a very nice hike to the waterfall. It is not very arduous and very accessible from Waikiki hotels. You should bring comfortable shoes, water, your camera. It takes about 30 - 45 minutes each way. Just park in the pay lot ($5?) and hike comfortably knowing your car will not be broken into - a huge problem... More
