Manoa Falls are a beautiful attraction in the midst of nature and are a very popular tourist attraction in Honolulu. You need to take a short hike to see them but they are every bit worth the effort. The lush green area amidst which you will find the cascading white water is simply spectacular.
Interestingly it is the place where the movie Jurassic Park and the TV Series Lost were filmed. The pretty waterfall and the moderate trek up the hill are the perfect day-trip while in Honolulu. Located close to Paradise Park, this place is a certain must-visit.

Stroll along a path deep into the rainforest, beneath towering banyan trees and bamboo forests where tropical birds play overhead and huge flowering vines cover the trees. You may see tropical birds eating from the guava, mango and mountain apple tre
We loved the Falls and the trail was not too bad as long as you bring real shoes to the hike (avoid flip flops). Try not to bring any clothes that are valuable as it gets quite muddy on the rocky terrain and if you don't like the rain then bring an umbrella as well. The hike was very breathtaking and had awesome views. The waterfall area was crowded but it was reassuring to know we weren't alone in case some accident were to happen. There are very steep ledges so I would recommend going with at least one other person and using each other to keep balance. All in all a really cool place to go to get out of the city.
This is a very well known hike where they try to maintain paths, which makes for a fairly easy hike. It has a decent waterfall at the end, but it is cabled off to keep people out. It can get busy on the weekends, so plan accordingly.
A 0.8 mile each way, up and down the trail. You need good hiking boots; muddy and slippery at some locations. It is preferred not to take children on the trail, though, to my surprise, saw some families risking it with children under the age of 10. Take a bottle of water; you will sweat. The water at the falls is not to plunge into, you will risk getting exposed to bacterial infection. The view midway and on the top is amazing. All shades of green and colorful flowers. Stop and enjoy the babbling stream water on the way.
This forest reminded me of Jurassic World, oh wait that's because it was filmed here, along with many other Hollywood films. Muddy trails, gigantic trees, numerous plant species and that beautiful waterfall at the end makes this one of the most memorable hikes I've ever been. And for the love of God, please don't bring your new pair of shoes.
A very easy hike with very scenic views. Good photo taking spots at the waterfall. Parking is $5 per vehicle so I would suggest street parking before going up the road to the trailhead. It's a hike, might as well do the little bit extra walking
