On the day we visited it was raining, but it was still a great day out. Walking through all the plants that I have growing in my house in nature was incredible. The falls were much smaller than we expected, but the walk made up for it.

I was looking forward to this hike and it did not disappoint. It is a tad away from Honolulu, but easy to find, especially with a GPS.. :) There is a bit of street parking available, but we opted for the $5 lot. As per everyone else's reviews, the two most important things are suitable shoes (preferably ones that you... More

Drove to the falls, and paid $5 to park. My wife and I wore sneakers because we weren't sure of the trail and that worked out ok. Just be careful the red mud can stain your shoes but there is a water hose to clean your shoes by the parking lot. We met a lady on the trail from S.F.... More

This was a beautiful trip our family made out here and it was well worth it. The entry to the car park was $5 with free entry after that. The walk a slightly challenging as you got closer to the falls due to the slippery floor. It rains alot here so the environment was very damp. It rained on our... More

Just a short drive from Honolulu brings to the trailhead for Manoa Falls. It is a short and relatively easy hike to the falls. There can be a lot of mosquitoes so you should wear mosquito repellent. It can also be quite damp and slippery. Good shoes are recommended. The falls are nothing spectacular, however it is a nice pretty... More

It's a quick, easy, beautiful hike unless you stop to take 500 pictures like we did. Bring $5 cash for parking, bug spray and good hiking shoes.

The hike wasn't bad a all. Very pretty, but on the day I was there, the falls were not flowing much.

The best part of the hiking to the falls is the scenery leading up to the falls. The fall is just average to me but I enjoyed the hike. With all the people at the falls it is impossible to get a photo in without someone photo bombing you.
