We hiked this trail yesterday. I am 60 years old, so it was somewhat strenuous for me. But I made it! My adult children flew past me! Don't forget to wear hiking shoes or good sneakers, and MOSQUITO REPELLENT! The scenery is awesome and is very much worth the effort.

Followed others advice and was sure to have proper shoes to make this climb (no flip flops!). The area is lush and green and wonderful. The climb was just a bit tricky in some spots (probably more-so if it was wet) but all in all an easy climb.

It's a rainforest so plan on rain. We got drenched.. but we had a blast too. The hike was easy for the young, moderate for the scared/inexperienced and maybe too much for the old. There is one view of a grown over valley at in the first 10 minutes that is amazing. You'll never see anything like it. The top..... More

A local bus and a 15 min ride from Honolulu will take you to the falls. We arrived on a day when it was drizzling and I think the trail was quite dangerous in places and I can see why people advise going to the falls with good walking shoes. The trail is quite strenuous, but worthwhile, taking you through... More

This is an easy hike through a lush rainforest to the manoa waterfalls. The trail has been well kept and maintained with lots of gravel to prevent further erosion. It does get a little muddy and there are lots of tree roots near the end of the hike that can make it a little tricker. The hike can be done... More

This was a real surprise being so close to the suburbs / just tucked away. Really nice spot for photographs and to sit and have a breather

only 1.6 miles round trip to see a free 100 foot waterfall attraction. rocks can be very slippery. This is a very doable hike even for couch potatoes as long as you wear proper footing and take water. elevation gain is only 400 feet, not the 800 feet advertised.
