Take the #5 bus from Ala Moana Center to Manoa Valley. At the end of the line (@25 min), walk 1/4 mile uphill to the trailhead. It'll be a small gate on you right hand side before Lyon Arboretum. It's about 1.5 mile RT, which took about an hour because it was very muddy & slippery. I'd highly recommend shoes with good traction, altho I did see some people in regular flip flops & they seemed to survive without any broken bones. The mosquitos were killer, I forgot bug spray & paid dearly for it. The waterfall at the top didn't have much water when I did the hike, but the hike itself more than made up for it. There's a shop at the bottom with a bathroom, food & drink, etc.
