Manoa Falls was beautiful!! About a 30 min hike uphill. Once you reach the waterfall be careful. The waterfall area is rocky to get down to and you are really not supposed to go down into the waterfall area due to possible falling rocks. Waterfall was beautiful…the trail was also beautiful! Definitely a must do!

The trail is short but definitely not easy. It is uphill and slippery.

If you have very elderly parents, just let them stay in the beginning of the trail. There is a wide open area right after the container gate and you would enjoy the tropical view which I think is the high light of this trip not the fall itself. After that, the trail becomes narrow down so crowded, muddy so slippery, humid so mosquit- heavenly

No picnic area. Bring bug repellent and a handkerchief( you will sweat a lot). It was too short we didn’t drink any water.

There is a pineapple desert shop right next to the entrance. Pineapple smoothie was about $10 .50 and ice cream was$6. Next time I go back, I will have pineapple only. They gave three pieces as a deco on my smoothie and it was very fresh and sweet.

We took bus #5 to get there. Very convenient.

A great hike for beginners who are only visiting Honolulu for a short time, as this doesn’t take long and is close to Honolulu city. This is a jungle trek with a chance to experience the lush green forests of Oahu while still on a relatively easy path (note it is uphill, but still would be doable by most ages and abilities). The mile long hike took us about 90 mins in total (there and back). Do douse yourself in plenty of mosquito repellant as we got bitten a couple of times. The greenery along the way are as good as the waterfall at the end. For the more adventurous, bring swimwear for a dip in the pool under the waterfall.

Nice little hike. Seen a couple of people with broken flip flops. You never know when it is going to rain or has rained. Carry a poncho with you. We got rain all the back but still enjoyed.

The falls are not easy to get to. You better like hiking and depending on the weather could be hot and human. I think the hike was worth it but it was tough for me. I'm over weight and out of shape but still made it to the falls. The surroundings and views are really cool and their is an old chair on the way up there you can sit in a get a picture. I would do the hike again and swim in the water.

The path upward is extremely muddy and rocky. Plan on ruining any white sneakers! The falls look a lot larger than they really are, because of your perspective from the lookout. It's worth the hike for the rain forest trees and plants. Young children may get tired.

Very close to Waikiki and an easy well defined walk to the water falls. Can be a bit muddy and it’s not too strenuous. It’s like being in a different world.

Pretty disappointing hike, most exciting part was getting back down to grab shaved ice. Probably a 20-30 minute hike all for a mostly disappointing view.

Definitely check it out! Go early to beat the crowd. It is an easy hike and the falls are beautiful. It rained most the hike but it didn’t change the experience at all! Bring bug spray.
