Manoa Falls, Honolulu

4.5
#2 of 96 in Trails in Hawaii
Falling more than 46 m (150 ft), Manoa Falls sparkles against a sheer rock face. Take a 2.4 km (1.5 mi) hike through tall trees with twisted trunks and thick greenery to reach the falls. The pathway is often slippery, so wear shoes with a good grip. Then be prepared to take these shoes off to wade in the shallow pool at the base of the waterfall. Our Honolulu trip planning site makes visiting Manoa Falls and other Honolulu attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • I took my 3rd is my own, but want to enjoy nature in Hawaii's first cousin and it was so. Cooperative environment for $ 5 to pay, at the entrance to the parking lot, parking (early in the morning without someone in the shop ticket to buy). One way 20-is about 25 minutes away, along the way, plants can be appreciated, you can enjoy the great outdoors. I think more often muddy in the rain, will provide a non-slip shoes or athletic shoes. Guests can experience full of negative ions in the ultimate goal at Manoa Falls nicely wind. This is the recommended places.

  • Definitely worth a visit when in Oahu! I went to see the Manoa falls solo. Caught a bus to Ala Moana shopping centre from Waikiki then bus #5 to Manoa. All went smoothly, the last stop on Manoa rd was...  more »
  • A very nice hike into a valley that’s been featured in both the movies and TV shows. From the valley floor you head up some 630+ feet of elevation gain to reach the Falls. This area has lots of shade ...  more »

  • This hike was labeled an easy hike. It was more like a moderate hike. Many wet rocks, stairs and in no way an easy trail. The terrain being so rocky, you couldn’t look away at all. Great foliage but not very enjoyable due to always looking down making sure you don’t slip and break your neck. Make sure you don’t wear flip flops. Very muddy in places. Bring water if you can.
  • Very nice hike. Steps can be slippery and muddy so plan ahead. The falls are very cool, wish I had brought a swimming suit to swim after in the pond.
  • Great hike. Great spot. Close to Waikiki and surrounding area
  • Fun and beautiful hike. Bring bug spray and good, grippy shoes. Show up early to beat the crowds. $5 to park.
  • Very beautiful hike surrounded by large trees and lush green shrubs. The road was muddy all the way to the top. So, dress accordingly. The creek runs next to the trail. I didn't have bug spay with me so I got bitten by so many mosquitos on the way. It was fun to read about the history of the Manoa falls from the information boards spread all over the trail.
