Super easy trail, not marked well, only 2-3 signs i've seen with long distances in between but obviously doable because I made it! Lol. Waterfall is beautiful and fun to jump off of the rocks and swim there. Only cons to this trail is the MUD!!! I can't stress enough how bad it is! It is super fun though when you're with friends and having a good time! Expect to fall or almost fall in the mud at some point lol. Oh and mosquitos are bad and some parts smelt like manure!! All in all though fun trail! I spent 4 & 1/2 hours there with about a hour at the falls.

scenic driving

Get the app Gypsy Guide. It cost a few bucks but you can download the around the island tour. It's like having a tour guide in the car with you. It has stops along the way for swimming spots, history you name it.

It was a bit tough since there is a lot of up hill, but also a lot of down, muddy at times but not bad at all. Some girls were in sandals, but I recommend shoes for sure. One of the coolest hikes I've ever done though. Totally worth it, the canyon view is incredible and the end of the trail ends up at the top of waipoo falls which is just amazing. Also, a side waterfall at the top which is nice to take a break at...The way back is hard for those who aren't in the best of shape, lots of up hill. Overall, beautiful hike- highly recommend!

The trail was absolutely beautiful but crossing the creek which becomes a raging river in the rain becomes extraordinarily difficult. The trail itself becomes a creek too in the rain. Keep an eye out for the pink or orange tape that marks the trail when it gets confusing and try to remember where you saw it last.

Easy trail, great strawberry guava harvest :) and good little work out. Great if you want an easy few hours of wilderness - not epic views but some good ones, too much road walking for me

trail running

Ran this yesterday, it seems they have made major improvements to the trail since the last time I've done it. There used to be muddy indented steps that were slippery in the rain, but now everything is rocky or man made steps. You would have to have terrible balance to slip even in the rain now. The improvements have made this hike easier than diamond head, so I recommend Manoa falls as your entry level, first hike. Bring non-flat shoes and clothes you can get muddy in and you'll be fine.

Listen, there's a guy up top frequently who tries to sell hiking certificates at a suggested "donation" rate of $10-15. He does not work for the park and is not an official vendor. You can get your official certificate at the entrance, in the gift shop for much cheaper ($2.50).

This was a nice walk up the steep hill. The dog loved it; even though she wore herself out. View at the top is beautiful!

Hi all,

I'm hoping to do this trail during my time there between Sept 2-6. Will be solo and hoping to find anyone with experience on this trail or just down to wing it. =) Email me at troyg0260@yahoo.com if interested. Thanks!
