We rented bikes and biked up to the trail head. Just a short walk further was the falls. The walk up to the falls was amazing, the tropical forest gave you the feel of being in a jungle. The trail is quite rocky and wet in some areas, You need to be in good walking shape to reach the falls.

We went as part of the GoOahu card activities. We went very early morning, there were few people around and it was a lovely experience. Not too much of a hike either. Take insect repellent!

Went in March & though there was no water for the waterfall when we got there as it was dry.. the walk was breathtaking. Luscious greens, beautiful jungle, easy walk. I'm going back next year. I'm from northern cali & it was my first time in Hawaii & I fell in love. Husband & I talked about moving up there.... More

Our 1.6-mile hike to Manoa Falls was our last stop of the day. A local woman told us this is the biggest she's ever seen the falls in over 30 years. Usually the 150' drop is just a trickle. Today, it was gushing like crazy! At least all the rain we've been getting during our visit is good for something... More

This is a great and very easy waterfall hike. Only about 20 minutes to the waterfall, which is very nice and watery - especially after rainfall, but it seemed to rain here all of June :-)

Went there on our last day in Hawaii. It was all worth it. Bring insect repellent lots of it !!! Good shoes as well. They will get muddy as it rains a lot in that area. Very lush environment. Bamboo forest as well. We didn't swim under the fall as I heard there is leptospirosis in the water. I didn't... More

We had half a day we were looking to fill with an activity and our hotel suggested hiking at Manoa falls and I'm glad we listened. We bused there which was only a 5 min walk from the bus stop to the gift shop where the hike starts. Though if you are planning on taking the bus it only comes... More

Nothing special if one just views the falls from the roadside as we did. There are perhaps trails or a walk at the bottom of the falls.

We visited the park with four couples, and thoroughly enjoyed the falls. We drove to the base and were charged $5 per car to park. The approx 0.8 mile hike to the top was through the rain forest with scenery taken from the pages of Jurassic Park. Once at the top, the falls were picturesque and spectacular. This trip is... More

Beautiful hike to the waterfall. Beautiful flowers and great scenery. The waterfall is very pretty we chose not to get into the water very brown/red water plus a sign saying a few things. We did our own hike along the trails and loved it we took a full day tour and this was one of our stops
