Rumour has it parts of Catching Fire and Jurassic Park were filmed here!

Brilliant, but sweaty, walk through stunning scenery - but make sure you don't miss the arboretum which also has its own walk up to a (smaller) waterfall - but contains a huge range of plants & flowers - absolutely stunning.

Loved this hike. Also went skinny dipping on a weekday and loved it. I chose to do it in flip flops because of the mud. It was a beautiful mess of fun!

We stopped and asked a local man where to go to see a beautiful waterfall where there weren't many tourists and this was it! It was beautiful and very peaceful.

This is a great hike. It is not too difficult but just enough inclines to make it interesting. The views are excellent throughout the hike. The end of the trail, Manoa Falls is beautiful and relaxing. You can bring a bathing suit and jump in as many people do. Be careful as you can easily lose your footing when the... More

Manoi Falls are at the end of s short walk - it took me 30 minutes at an easy pace. I went early in the day to avoid the heat, but in reality the rainforest humidity and breezes offer a bit of heat and cool-off anyway. I encountered quite a bit of mud, which I'd read about on other Tripadvisor... More

We did not plan on coming here so we were just wearing flip flops. We thought we'll be in trouble hiking since we did not wear proper shoes and we are wrong. The trail is easy and not very long.
