Manoa Falls, also known as Jurassic Falls, is an excellent experience for those willing to take a long hike. You can do it on your own but a guide brings it alive. Can be quite slippery when wet.

It is a relatively easy walk. As with other reviews takes about an hour. It is a lovely waterfall and the diversity of plants is quite lovely. Worth the drive.

The trail to Manoa Falls was muddy and full of logs to step over. It was touted to our group as an easy trail but there was nothing easy about it. The folks got muddy but the falls were lovely.

This is the first place we visited in Honolulu. I was amazed by the greenery and beautiful trail. The trail was fairly easy and falls are great.

Not as easy a hike as others claim but well worth the walk! Not a paved trail. Love the view! They plan to have an interpretive center soon. There is a gift shop which is well stocked plus a snack bar.

People swim in this water fall and don't pay attention to any warnings. In Hawaii you should never swim in a water fall because of Leptospirosis. Look it up, it's in all of the water. I would never risk it. Just enjoy the... More

Yes it is possible with a youngster. May be a few little spots that a little more care needs to be taken. Just be mindful of the people behind you and let them pass. Also don't do if it has rained as there are some slippery... More
