Not worth your time. Between this place and the pineapple plantation, I don't know which is worse. There are beautiful grounds at Manoa Falls. The landscaping is NUTS. Honestly, I was truly taken aback by the beauty I was able to be in the presence of...... HOWEVER, here's the thing, all the while, on the drive there, on the walk around the grounds,... the whole time, all I could do is be excited about the falls. If I recall correctly, they even had some footsteps or signs along the way stating little messages like, "You're almost there" Everything about this place builds your anticipation for this waterfall you think is gonna knock your socks off. Well, I regret to inform you, the falls are super short, they are not what you think they're going to be. There's show on them to boot with a guy who jumps off different ledges of the rocks of the falls but honestly, I'm sure the pool's diving board at most universities are higher than the one at most universities. Underwhelmed is how you'll feel afterwatching the show at the falls and again, if you've been to Niagara or Victoria or Kaieteur Falls, you're gonna have to do a double take when you see Manoa Falls..... Don't say I didn't warn you!

Great experience, but extremely muddy. Be prepared for sinking in mud before you reach the falls. While otherwise easy, weae rubber boots and simple clothing. . .you will experience extreme muddy conditions.

Take a walking stick and shoes and clothes you don’t mind throwing away!!!! In fact, WEAR BLACK. This is a VERY muddy trail, difficult at times. Your stick will help you balance. Otherwise, if you underestimate the muddiness like I did, you’ll wind up with mud everywhere!! I’m not kidding. I slid all over the place. The grotto at the beginning of the hike was breathtaking. I wish I had brought a picnic and just stopped there for a little while. The falls are beautiful, but I would really SERIOUSLY weigh who is with you. Small children will love the mud bath, but cleaning them up will be a nightmare. DO NOT take elderly people. My fiancé had good hiking shoes on and did better than my walking shoes, but still weighing whether it was worth it. Parking is $5. There is an attendant there (unless you get there early). They have a water hose in the parking lot to wash off with. Go early. The trail was worse going down because so many people came up behind us.

Great scenery in the rainforest and the Manoa Falls at the end of the trail is beautiful. Worthwhile to pay for a tour to get an experienced guide to explain some of the plants, etc.
