Manoa Falls, Honolulu Reviews

  • Manoa Falls height is a great 1 hour hike (round trip) At the end is the Fall. It is not high enough for any city view or anything. The trail is covered by foliage, so you can hike in the shade. Right in the middle is a bamboo forest. A nice place to take a break and listen the the brushing bamboo leaves. This is my favorite New Year hike where everywhere (malls) are closed but the trail is open!

  • Absolutely breathtaking hike! A must-see waterfall! Easy hike for all ages. I do recommend wearing sneakers, and planning to get a little muddy. Bring some baby wipes along in the car so you can clean up after your hike. Hope you enjoy!

  • This hike is like a nice little walk through a park. Trail is pretty easy to walk on and not very challenging. The day we went there wasn't a lot of water coming down the falls, but it was still cool. I think the hike was more rewarding with the views along the way. Very busy trail, and once you get to the falls there seems to be a lot of people that disregard the signs telling you not to go past a certain point and do anyways so they can swim in the very small pool of water at the base of the falls. Other than all the people, it was a nice little hike.

  • Gorgeous waterfalls with a clearly marked trail. The clearing before the trail head reminds me of Jurassic Park, which is fun! The hike gets muddy after a rain, so in hindsight I would have worn boots instead of my Nikes as they are caked in mud. A good trail for the Family as it is clearly marked with some good stops along the way to the top.

  • Nice little hike! Easy, but be careful of heavy rain. Kids as young as 4-5 should be able to do this.
