The walk to the falls was very muddy and slippery in places, but a good walk that's only about half an hour and well worth it. The forest is amazing. Had to pay to park $5.00 and fills up fast.

This is a very doable hike to a lovely waterfall AND it's close to Honolulu. We drove (parking was $5), but I think you can take the bus.. Do not wear saddles! Do NOT wear shoes you love! This is a messy, muddy, slippery hike! Do take a walking stick of some kind and stay close to the mountainside or... More

A well worn track that looks more slippery than it is. It's a beautiful national park with native planting; lush jungle and rushing streams. Was a great contrast to where we were staying, and Diamond Head.

Hiked Manoa Falls on 07/04/2016. Directions from Google maps were accurate, leads you to a "restaurant/cafe" and a small parking lot. There is an attendant there that gives you a parking slip to pay for and place on your dash. Parking is $5. The hike is relatively easy. The trail is well maintained and well established - no exploring and... More

Decided to visit this "landmark" whilst on a holiday in Hawaii, during the months of June /July 2016 ... what a disaster!

We hiked up to the falls the day after it had rained much of the night, consequently the Falls looked just like the picture above!! Though it was a little muddy, Lawrence and Rodney took good care of us, making sure we were all safe and doing well on the sometimes moderately strenuous climb. Both were so knowledgeable about the... More

This is a nice hike through the rain forest but don't expect to see the waterfall in the summer. It takes rain to generate a waterfall. If it is/was raining go early. By noon, you are walking lock step behind tourists and school groups. DO NOT ENTER THE POOL OR CLIMB THE SIDES. There are rock slides that fall into... More

It's a twenty minute walk through wonderfully varied flora on a paved path to the falls. Or a $10.00 roundtrip on a golf cart. Gift shop has a restaurant and small collection of artifacts. Several movies have been filmed here, they have posters on a wall. We walked it in the rain, still very nice.

If you only have time for one hike on Oahu, choose Manoa Falls. Felt like we were in a rainforest the entire time. It only takes about 1 1/4 hours to complete. Hopefully you can go after a rain, when the water will be flowing and you can hear it the entire hike.
