Manoa Falls, don't come, don't know. It's amazing. Although it's better to come here on sunny days, I caught the heavy rain when I came to the waterfall. It's not interesting. There are raincoats and raincoats under the waterfall for two dollars each. Primitive forest scenery, "Jurassic Park" many exterior scenes are taken here, although the scenery is beautiful, but the road is not very easy to walk, pitted, rainy days slippery, must wear skid-proof shoes, or climbing shoes, normal climbing takes more than 30 minutes, rainy days more than 40 minutes. If you join a group to play, you can save unnecessary trouble. If you travel freely, there are buses, but it takes 30 minutes to get to the foot of the mountain. It's OK to drive by yourself. There's also a parking lot on this side. It's better to have dinner. There's also a restaurant under the hill. It's all simple food. It's better to bring some water with you. You must drink water when you climb the hill. Pure wild parks, without tickets, are worth coming.
Crossing the mountains, walking in the primitive forest to visit Manoa Falls, the scenic waterfall, the water flowing down the mountain is very cool. Here gathers the passengers to play in the water, the photography is a good place. Experience the beautiful environment and feel the comfort of nature.
The Manoa Falls Trail, located in Koolau Mountain Range, Hawaii, is about 2 kilometers long. It is not only one of the most worthwhile hiking routes in Hawaii, but also the scene for movies and TV dramas such as Jurassic Park and Lost. President Barack Obama took his family on a hike during Christmas 2013. 。
For visitors to Oahu who are staying in or around Waikiki, Manoa Falls might just be the easiest to find, and most rewarding little hike in the area. Only a ten minute or so drive north from Waikiki, this approximately half mile long hike proceeds from the back of the lush Manao Valley to a spectacular waterfall. The trek is generally suitable to all comers, although it can get a little bit treacherous (to at least your footwear) after heavy rains. Still, heading up after some rain will ensure that the waterfall is cascading magnificently. More adventurous hikers can keep the fun going by proceeding along another leg of the trail that can be accessed at the falls and leads to the scenic Pauoa flats, but the experience of making it to the falls alone is more than worth the easy trip.
Manoa Falls is very close to Honolulu and can be reach by car in about 15-20 minutes. This is not an easy hike and families with small ones should not try to venture up to the falls. It is very wet, muddy and slippery but once you get there the view is worth the walk. Recommend you were good sneakers that can be rinsed off or water socks with good gripping. The walk up to the falls is just as breath taking as the fall itself. Lots of beautiful and unsually plants along the way. It may rain on you so bring alont a poncho or and umbrella just in case. Well worth the adventure and this one just few of accessible waterfalls on the islands so do not miss your chance to see it close up.
The hike up to Manoa Falls is pretty easy, but it's usually quite muddy, so wear sensible hiking shoes. Even small children should be able to make it up there though. You see lots of lush plants on the way up, & maybe meet a feral rooster or two.At the top you'll be rewarded with a view of the narrow, but fairly tall falls, and a pool that I expect you're not supposed to bathe in, but many do. I don't know if he still does it, but I met a local up there who hikes in each day and leaves a few crystals around for people to find.
This hike is so beautiful! One minute you are in the middle of the hustle and bustle in Waikiki, the next you are staring at this beautiful thing of nature. It's an easy hike, 20 minutes to the waterfall and 20 minutes back. It rained the day we hiked and it added to the adventure. The only part I didn't like was people went beyond the fence and jumped in the water. Other people couldn't take pictures because they were in the scenery. I thought those people were rude and selfish. Otherwise, it was a wonderful experience.
A great hike not too far from Waikiki Shore. Manoa Falls is a waterfall located in the Manoa Valley. Look straight up towards the mountain from Waikiki Shore. The trail is 1.6 miles and leads up to a 150 foot waterfall. I have done this hike with my Hawaiian hiking shoes (rubber slippers) but most would prefer sport shoes. Highly recommended.
Such a beautiful hike to an amazing breathtaking waterfall! The hike is easy! Spray bug repellent beforehand! The air is moist and lots of big mosquitos. The hike up is a little difficult if your shoes don't have a grip. Hike up took about 40-50 minutes for us. Plan to go early! It was perfect weather when we hiked up! (9am).
I love this hike. It's on the easier side, but I wouldn't say it's easy, especially if you are not a seasoned hiker. The surrounding area is incredibly lush and you really do feel like you're on the set of Lost. The hike starts off relatively easy, but it gets muddy and dirty and you end at a beautiful waterfall. If you're a seasoned hiker, there are probably better hikes in the area, but this one is a generally accessible hike for everyone else. Wear bug repellent.
