The hike was a bit more than I expected but the end result was beautiful! If you have hiked Diamond Head than you can do this hike. It can be slippery (you are in a rainforest) so make sure to wear sneakers. It's also a...More

Going there was tricky. Make sure you take Moana Road (the one on the left) at the split and not E Moan Road (on the right) or you will end up at a dead end. Once you get to the end of Moana Road, you...More

Nice easy hike. Great view of falls at top. Pouring rain at top of hike for 20 minutes making the climb down wet and slippery. Glad I had sneakers. Don’t know how people do that in flip flops. Well worth the 5$ to park in...More

This is a wonderful short hike through tropical forest along Manoa stream, leading to Manoa Falls. I live in Manoa and hike it frequently. Avoid mornings when tour groups are more common. Wear appropriate footwear for wet and muddy conditions, especially if it is raining.

Beautiful hike (a mile or two) up to the falls, almost like walking in a rain forest. Safe area and worth tons of photos!

Straight out not for the faint hearted. Going up the path to get to the falls the path is wet, slippery & muddy and at times narrow. The falls are beautiful.

We were so excited to do the hike, but unfortunately closed due all the rain we had yesterday! In a beautiful area, will have to try again before we go home!

This was our third trail hike and we are not hikers. It rains in this area frequently; so, the path is often wet and very muddy. It is not as well maintained as Diamond Head or Koko. Be sure to wear appropriate clothing and shoes...More

Rain rain and more rain The view of the waterfall is well worth the muddy slippery walk! The scenery and natural reserve is the most stunning thing I’ve ever seen. It’s a short easy walk in the rainforest but somehow we got a fair amount...More

Just minutes away from Waikiki is a great hike that is not very long, feels very tropical, and has a waterfall. Parking is very limited and costs $5 per car. Although the hike is not very strenuous, it is very muddy and slippery, especially as...More

There’s no one there to stop you, but I believe there is a sign that says don’t go in. Many people still get into the water.
