Surprising falls

This was a real surprise being so close to the suburbs / just tucked away. Really nice spot for photographs and to sit and have a breather

only 1.6 miles round trip to see a free 100 foot waterfall attraction. rocks can be very slippery. This is a very doable hike even for couch potatoes as long as you wear proper footing and take water. elevation gain is only 400 feet, not the 800 feet advertised.

This place is "other-worldly" beautiful! The hike starts off easy, then fairly moderate, but the last half mile or so is a challenge for even the moderately in-shape person. Make sure you bring water and wear good shoes for hiking. Go earlier in the day as possible. The parking lot fills up. It's a very sweaty experience, so go while... More

It is not a tremendous waterfall, but it is very tall. The hike was nice, it took about 2 hours total. I would definitely recommend this to those visiting the area.

After hiking to Manoa Falls, you might want to visit the Lyon Arboretum. Very easy hiking area. This area is very beautiful and you can enjoy nature at its finest. The Lyon Arboretum is just a short drive farther from the area of Manoa Falls. You can get a map of the different trails to visit. Maps are located in... More

I completed this hike while 8 months pregnant. The path was marked with stones and took about 40 minutes, with lots of stops for pictures along the way. The trail winds through the beautiful forest and there are even a few trails off the main path to go deeper. The waterfall was pretty anticlimactic. It's pretty; it's a waterfall, but... More

We took the bus from Waikiki to this water fall only paid $2.50 return fro the bus, entry free. Be careful if it has been raining as the track is slippery. Do not attempt in thongs wear runners, views are breathtaking.

It is a short hike back in the thick of the forest. It was raining off and on during our hike. In October the showers are frequent and normal. Hiking boots or good shoes are very helpful. It can get muddy and there are some rock trails. Must bring: Camera [of course]; BUG SPRAY. These mosquitoes are aggressive! A simple... More

We took our 5 year old on this hike. She was a bit scared at times but had a lot of fun. There are areas at the top that are big rocks to climb but most of it is a nice rocky path. Bring bug repellant. I am 3 months pregnant and wore it just to be on the safe... More

The parking is $5 which isn't bad. The walk takes about 30-40mins to reach the fall. It's a beautiful walk but wear good shoes and mosquito spray. We wore spray and bands and still got bitten loads. We went off to try and do the walk to the valley but we left it too late so make sure you leave... More
