My family went for this hike to Manoa Falls. It happened to rain a little on our hike which made everything muddy and a little slippery. I got incredible photos along the trail. The hike for me was challenging and takes a bit of time and a lot of effort. When we got to the actual falls the water was... More

The hike was worth the journey! However water fall was a disappointment. The hike is challenging and scenic through lush vegetation. When we went it started to rain and it was slippery, I recommend wearing good shoes.

We loved this tour. It is a very "easy" tour, although the walking sticks were helpful on the slippery points. Oahu Nature Tours provides an outstanding overview of the geology and flora/plants as you are guided to the falls. The guide also pointed out where scenes from Jurassic Park (old and new movie) were filmed, Lost and Hunger Games. I... More

wear the right shoes as it is a little treacherous -but is beautiful but beware it is a good hike - you will walk on rocks and at times it can be slippery

The hike was beautiful. A bit crowded at times and very, very humid. Bring your bug spray. Despite what some will say, there are mosquitoes! It was a fairly easy hike but does have some rough terrain. I actually loved the hike, but was a bit disappointed as the "fall" was more like a wet side of a rock.

This place is Eden! The falls were a lot more than a trickle when we were there but i'm sure it varies. The most beautiful part of the place is a trail leading up the mountain on your left about thirty feet before you get to the falls lookout. Its not very well identified and consists of a bunch of...

This is a beautiful hike, easy if sometimes a bit muddy from frequent rains. One can take a city bus to within a half mile of the trailhead, and on the way back swing up through the Lyons Arboretum, belonging to UofH. The bird population and native plants are beautiful, great trails to walk and a nice if small gift... More

Get the number 5 at the Ali Mona shopping mall on Kona street under mall outside (opposite side) of Nordstrom. Go to end of line, bus will turn off engines. If you are used to walking 4 miles you will be able to walk up to fall and jump on the next bus within the hour. The climb is steep... More

If you are looking for a moderate hike with great scenery, this is it. There is no fee to hike, but we had to pay $5 to park. The hike to the falls and back takes about 45 min. to an hour depending on your pace. It is pretty much all up hill...so you should be in pretty good shape.... More

Just love the walk through beautiful forest. Took tons of snaps, got to the falls only just flowing, but on the positive side if the falls were falling strongly the paths would be a bit slippery. I enjoyed the walk to and from.
