Great Hike and nice nature path

This hike is very simple and good for an afternoon after work hike .... however there are way better ones on the island! Watch out with your car! The car which parked right next to ours was broken in ... even on the parking lot where you have to pay!!!

One of the very few things (other than the ocean) to do in the area that is enjoyable, refreshing and interesting. good for family and a chance to work off some calories from all the Mai Tai;s!

Relied on previous reviews before attempting hike to Manoa Falls and no one truly described the sometimes narrow, rocky and muddy trail through the forrest. This hike is definitely NOT handicaped accessible, as there are many stairs to climb along the way. You are in a rain forest that is hot and humid with mosquitos to contend with. There are... More

An easy bus ride from downtown Waikiki or Ala Moana shopping centre for 2.5 dollars takes you very near to the gate of Paradise Park. Bus number 5 I recall. The park is no longer in operation unfortunatelly for the youngsters. It used to be a jewel in Honolulu with many exhibits and lots and lots of animals and birds.... More

This is a rugged hike thru the mountainous rain forest just outside of Honolulu. You get to see much of the natural beauty of the island on the trail to the waterfall. Even though the waterfall was running weak on our trip, the end result was still worth the hike. Many films have scenes taken in this area. I would... More

This was a beautiful hike through the rainforest, and it was a wonderful work out. The waterfall was stunning. I will definitely do this hike a few times a week, since I live in Honolulu.

This hike was spectacular. The lush vegetation and bamboo trees were something we don't see everyday. The falls themselves were pretty disappointing but the hike there was amazing. We went in the morning and it was not busy at all. Be prepared to pay 5.00 cash to park. I would rate this as an easier hike. Only one tricky area... More

This was a beautiful hike thru a rainforest. It was just beautiful, the vegetation was just amazing. It was a very easy hike, and the waterful was worth any effort you might make to get there.

Not worth the workout! I guess it depends on when you go. The picture doesn't do it justice. It was neat to see a jungle of bamboo. Cost $5 to park the car.
