The hike to the falls is spectacular. It has a mix of jungle, bamboo forest, & trees of all varieties. The trail goes along a creek. The falls were amazing. We enjoyed the hike and the views.

We went on a hike to Manoa Fall to get a better understanding of the Hawaiian Rainforest. It was gorgeous landscaping and a very lush environment. The day that we went it was hot and humid. I guess that is expected when you are in a rainforest. The hike was not difficult, but because of the humidity, we were soaked... More

The muddy climb is part of the experience. It's a waterfall, afterall! We (children of the Midwest) aren't used to climbing, waterfalls, or the tropics, so we took Manoa falls as an adventure. The walk up to the falls starts out relatively flat and beautiful, well maintained, and covered with amazing views and spectacular plants and flowers. Then it gets... More

This hike was my favorite by far. We went very early in the morning and it was raining, but it was still perfect. It was like being in a totally different world. There are trees for days and the hike is right along side the water from the waterfall which is really pretty to look at along the way. Once... More

The result is worth it. But expect to encounter mud and slippery rocks. Hiking shoes or boots are a must. Parking can be a bit of a challenge too. The parking lot is small and it fills up. But the climb is not challenging for most people between 5-85 years of age. And some of the scenery along the way... More

My fiancé and I heard great things about Manoa Falls after reading reviews about the crowding and odd tunnel experiences when going up Diamond Head. We found Manoa Falls instead and were very happy we chose this! The hike is about a mile total through beautiful green growth. We went on a particularly humid day and there wasn't too much... More

Oahu is such a remarkably diverse island even though it's not that large. Manoa Falls is a rain forest and is well worth exploring. Clouds hang over the mountains and rain pours down on occasion. The hike itself is relatively easy – about 30 minutes and not too sharp of an incline. The waterfall at the top is a great... More

We really enjoyed this relatively short and easy hike to a lovely waterfall. It's a little muddy and slippery in spots, and you might bring some bug spray. A nice way to spend a couple of hours!

Great little hike. You get some nice views back towards Waikiki from a few spots. Trail can be a bit muddy if it's rainy on that side of the mountain. Make sure to take some water. There's a fee for parking at the trailhead. Don't leave any valuables in your car. Nice way to spend some time away from the... More

This is an easy-moderate hike up to a beautiful waterfall. There are great spots along the way - incredible root/tree formations, rocks, vegetation, stream and small waterfalls. It is slippery - hiking shoes/sneakers should be worn. Great for the whole family - should take you about 90 minutes round trip, including some photo opps along the way. in short, if... More
