Very easy hike to a beautiful spot! Cute gift shop inside! We went around 8 am and there was hardly anyone there, by time we came down, the parking lot was packed.

The trail to Manoa Falls is one of the most beautiful and lush I have ever hiked on. Sooooo green, so scenic and beautiful! Everything is covered in vines, this is the real deal jungle, folks! HUGE trees, amazing setting. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! This was the highlight to my visit to Oahu.

Really enjoyed our walk to the fall. We went in September and it was very humid. Underfoot there had been some rain the previous day and close to the falls it was slightly slippery underfoot, which prevented my wife from completing the trip to the falls. There is no hand rail and there are steep drops in some places, so... More

First of all, this climb was NOT "easy" as some would have you believe. You better be in shape. It's very steep and has many curves. Once we got to the falls, it was barely a trickle. You can see how wide it should be. Afterwards we found out this was due to this being a dry season and that's... More

When it rains the place becomes seriously dangerous. Every time it rained you could always see the helicopter lifting some injured person out of there to take them to hospital. Even if your quite experienced, avoid if it's raining, been raining that morning or the night/day before.

This is a good hike for those who are amateurs. We do not do a lot of hiking, but were able to handle this hike pretty easily. it has some terrain issues but there were people of all ages doing this and the view at the end is amazing. It has some great photo opportunities along the way as well.... More

Fantastic hike to the waterfalls. Bring shoes as it usually drizzles in the morning. The tour we did was not very good as the driver drops us at the bottom of the falls and does not accompany us and explain the movie sites along the trail. The movie and tv sites are not marked like Lost and Jurassic park etc.... More

Awesome little hike very close to Honolulu. Great for beginners. Mostly shaded easy parking (fee for parking) and nice walk. Must do but wear mosquito repellant.

This was a nice fairly easy hike that's mostly shaded; so it's not too hot. Unfortunately, since it hadn't been raining for a while, the falls wasn't too big.

Great hike I would definitely recommend for almost all ages. Wear old sneakers you don't mind getting muddy. Without a doubt bring bug spray and USE IT! We sprayed down before entering but with all the sweating going on while hiking the Mosquitos had fun with us!! It's beautiful and for the most part peaceful. We ran across two tourists... More
