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

This view at the end is well worth the short & easy hike! We took our time and it was about an hour round trip. The trail is uneven & slippery at times, but manageable.

We did this in late August. It had rained recently but was still a great hike. We didn't find it too muddy or slick and it was a pretty easy hike. The forest was great with lots of bamboo. We couldn't make it to Maui so I wanted to hike in bamboo forest.....this definitely sufficed. When we reached the falls... More

Manoa Falls is a moderate to easy hike that is quite accessible from Waikiki. We took the bus there and back. It was nice to see a residential neighborhood on the way in and out. The bus ride was maybe 45 minutes. The hike was about 40 minutes each way. From the bus stop, you walk uphill through the neighborhood... More

Pretty fun walking through the thickness of a rainforest. Wonderful waterfall at the top. Also an additional trail to the upper falls on the left. Didn't see it until on the way back and didn't use it but it's there if you are looking for the upper falls

Journey – Ecological Tour 44 – Rainforest Waterfall Excursion The rainforest waterfall hiking tour was quite unforgettable. It was an fitness exercise that cannot be taken likely. It was incredible to take the journey with the deep path into the forest – a trail that leads to the amazing tallest waterfalls on the Oahu island. What a fabulous scenic that... More

The trail head for the falls is above sea level a bit so you will be subject (potentially) to occassional showers/downpours, so have plastic bags for your electronics. You do go uphill a fair amount and part of the pah involves slippery rocks, so a walking stick is highly recommended. Also, remember a wide brimmed hat and misquito spray with... More

We (me, my wife, and two daughters aged 14 and 12) tackled this extremely easy hike in the early afternoon. It's in the hills North of Waikiki, and even when it's sunny down on the beach it is often rainy up by the falls. They have a gift shop where you can purchase ponchos and bug spray. The bug spray...
