Manoa Falls Trail is a 1.5 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near Honolulu, HI that features a waterfall and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
A short hike to the base of Manoa Falls, passing through movie scene locations from Jurassic Park and Lost This short hike will take you to 100ft Manoa Falls. The trail can be quite muddy, so make sure to wear proper shoes (you will be sorry if you wear flip flops, because your toes will easily slip around once they get muddy. Several scenes from the TV show LOST were filmed here, as was parts of Jurassic Park (you can see posters in the building with bathrooms and food service). Unfortunately, you cannot swim in the pool at the base of the waterfall, but the view alone justifies the easy hike. There is a $5 fee to park.
Very easy, beautiful hike. BUT there is a secret second waterfall you can hike too. Pretty sure it's illegal and it's VERY dangerous but somehow my friends and I managed to find it and hike it. Scariest experience of my life but so absolutely amazing and thrilling! Worth it, but don't know if I'd have the balls to do it again.
Great hike. Not too long.
Fairly easy trail with a nice waterfall at the end.
As others have mentioned, when arriving, there is a parking lot ($5) on the right, just past the restaurant. The day I went, it was rainy and muddy but not too slippery. The round-trip took about an hour.
Nice, easy hike. Very crowded and muddy. Bring mosquito spray!
This is a great hike for all types of people, whether you've brought your family or you just want to do one on your own. It took us under an hour to reach the top from the start point outside the parking you may have to pay $5 for parking but you don't need to bring cash. Bring your swimsuit if you want to take a swim in the crystal clear pool at the bottom of the fall. There's also a restaurant near the parking lot for when you're done and hungry.
Good trail to do on a slow afternoon. Took us about an hour
Loved it! Muddy!!
Perfect for the kids.
nice easy walk, the last part a bit more challenging.
