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

We booked an excursion to this attraction. DO NOT do that. I spent over $130 for a family of 3 to see this site, when you can drive up yourself and hike the trail to the falls for a nominal entrance fee. While I appreciated the bug spray and walking sticks as it was slippery in places and company of... More

A camera is a must. Absolutely breathtaking. We took light rain jackets and good thing because it poured. It was a great, beautiful, breathtaking experience. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We were given walking sticks but found them to be more of a pain to carry. Make sure to use the restroom before you begin the hike. Sneakers are a must.

You can get a bus from the Ala Moana centre to Manoa. We trekked up to the waterfalls (waterproofs and trainers required as the path is very muddy and it is really humid). There's some lovely forest on the way to the falls and then it is very secluded and peaceful when there. Not for those who struggle with mobility.... More

On my recent trip trip to Hawaii we planned weveral hikes. The fisrt hike was the Makapuu Lighthouse hike. Although enjoyable it was also a very hot and dry hike more geared to excercise than sightseeing. The next day we went on the Manoa Falls hike and we are glad we did! Even though its a short drive from the... More

The trail is nice 0.8 mile trek to the waterfalls. Beautiful trees on the trail, several nice spots along to take photos, and well maintained path with small rocks. Can get a little muddy and/or slippery here or there. Great for the whole family. $5 parking paid at the snack shop where you can purchase some food, beverages, shaved ice... More
