We caught the #5 bus from Ala Moana. Be warned - it only runs once an hour so time your arrival appropriately. Short walk along the road to the start of the trail. Suggest taking a poncho or be prepared to get wet - you...More

We went with friends on a Saturday and the trail was quite busy. We frequently had to stop to let people pass. The trail is described as easy, but it's definitely moderate. It is steep at times, wet and muddy. You'll want bug spray but...More

We went early morning. It was sprinkling at first which turned into heavier rain as the morning went on. I wish I would've worn a poncho and water shoes. The hike isn't difficult in general. The rain produced a lot of running water that was...More

This is just awesome and much better than Waimea Falls. If you don't have a car, it's easy to navigate to using the city bus service (#2 and #5 from Waikiki). Very damp and muddy hike of about 0.6 miles to get to the waterfall....More

You drive up the hill till the road (Manoa road) ends, then hike in about a mile. The trail takes you thru rainforest as you climb over 800 feet in elevation, over the hike. (Rocks and tree roots can be very slippery, especially if raining/misting,...More

We figured we go see Manoa Falls because we've heard so much about it. As we drove up, we drove right past the parking lot (as a few others did) because there is little or no signage to tell you where to park. When we...More
