Spread across the upper region of the lush Manoa Valley, the 200 acre of Lyon Arboretum and Botanical garden is a man-made tropical paradise.
The number of trails that wind throughout its vast expanse and the serene water features that embrace the greenery all around, is something no one should miss when in Honolulu.
Do check out the native Hawaiian plants maintained here- especially the Pritchardia spp. (palms), gingers, heliconias, bromeliads, and aroids.
A camera is the perfect company to capture the beautiful flowers and trees in pictures and if you love hiking, the trails offers a refreshing experience.

Lyon Arboretum Reviews & Ratings
One of the top Botanical gardens on island. For a $5 donation you can walk through acres of tropical plants, many native Hawaiian, all the way to a small, but beautiful waterfall. Not stroller friendly, as the paths are gravel. Many paths are not maintained. Put on bug spray before starting out!
This is a must do when in Honolulu. The hike up to the waterfall is awesome. The sounds and scenery are what you come to Hawaii to see.
Beware of over stimulating beauty! This place is legit gorgeous and I'm so bummed that I hadn't scheduled more time here. Truly, truly amazing. I highly recommend going when they first open so you have time to photograph without people on your background. Also, bring bug spray. They do sell small deet bottles for just a couple bucks. You'll see people parking along the way up, but they have a large parking lot at the top of the hill next to the visitor center and bathrooms as well.
True jungle'ish hikes to a waterfall. Over 100 acres of land with trails and they range from paved to swampy Mudd and just make your own...this was an amazing experience! Well worth the drive!
If you want to experience the Hawaiian rainforest without having to rely on a machete then this is the place to go. Beautiful sculpted gardens and for the more adventurous gravel and dirt trails that go back into the jungle for miles.
