We like to do our walks/hikes first thing in the morning. We usually start at sunrise or slightly before it to avoid the heat and the crowds of tourists. Unfortunately, it worked against me this time. I missed the man at the bottom of the hill who hands out free mosquito repellent (he was there when we were leaving). The result was literally close to 20 bites on my body. The mosquitoes of Hawaii have fed off of several generations of my family (my family is from Hawaii) so apparently they were waiting for me. My bf only had one or two bites. So, definitely take the bug repellent!!! It's a leisure relatively short walk to the falls. It's good to ask the bug repellent man if the falls are flowing. It might be ...

This is the best hike I've ever been on visually! I totally felt like I was in a jungle. Everything was so green..so fresh and alive it was absolutely beautiful! The hike did feel a bit longer than it sounded but that was perfectly fine. The only challenge I found on this hike was trying not to slip..and I don't hike or exercise nearly as much as I used to/would like. There were a lot of families (including a lot of little kids) hiking up and down the trail...if they can do it you most likely can. Yes compared to Niagara Falls the water fall isn't nearly as big (duh) but was still gorgeous! Pictures do no justice for it in my opinion. The other neat thing about our hike was that it even started raining a bit...

The hike is easy despite what other people might say. There was a group of kids with handicaps in front of us and they made it to the top. If they can, you can. The trail can get a bit muddy, especially towards the top. Just watch your st...

Good, relatively easy (saw lots of kids and older folks alike), short hike up to the Manoa Falls.  The trail can get very slippery due to the mud and like all the other reviewers said, please wear shoes not flip flops...and don'...

This is a really easy trail and is probably a great stop for visitors to take in a little natural scenery on Oahu.  I highly recommend that anyone staying here for more than a couple days come and check this place out at least once.  It takes about 30 minutes and the incline is pretty slight.  Children 6+ can probably hike it, and a physically fit person could probably care any children younger than that up. While its not a challenging trail for the die-hard hikers, it is a beautiful trail.  My favorite part is the large bamboo groves.  The first section also opens up widely into a green preserved valley that is hard to find elsewhere on Oahu. The Manoa Falls themselves are actually pretty slight, especially...

Whatever you do, don't use Google Maps and type this in as a point of interest to get directions!!!! We did that and Google Maps ended up taking us to the middle of a highway in Oahu. It wasn't fun :-( Instead, if you are looking for the entrance to the hike, type in "Manoa Road" on Google Maps or your GPS and drive all the way to the end of the road. The entrance to the Falls was closed off the day we went because they were filming Hawaii Five-O, so we ended up parking along Manoa Road (for free!) and walking to the entrance. The extra exercise was nice, and we got to save some money in parking, so it was a win-win. This is probably one of our favorite hikes that we did while in Hawaii. The climate and the ...

Such a precious hike. No steep ridges, trecherous trails, or steep inclines. The perfect trail to take your family or visitors on. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous! So lush and green. I came with a friend and we parked on the nearby residential street without any problems. I think it took us about ...

Took the bus up there from Ala Moana Center.  The bus itself doesn't drop you off at the trail.  You must get off on some residential area and walk a good 10 - 15 minutes north (sidewalks will disappear, and oddly enough there were signs posted that said pedestrians need to yield to traffic!) The entrance to the trail is like walking into Jurassic park (if it existed.  No, Universal Studios doesn't count).  Be sure to wear shoes you won't mind getting mud on. The mud stains do not come off.  I saw one person slip on a rock wearing sandals, but others managed without slipping at all.  There will be lines of people joining you on the hike.  Even dogs, little old grannies, and children.   The hike is not strenu...
