Very lovely and easy paved 3/4 mile walkway directly to the falls. The pathway is filled with beautiful plants and flowers and the falls, although small, is refreshing, and a beautiful vibrant blue color. As many mentioned there is a $16 charge, but nonetheless, I would suggest this to anyone looking for some leisurely fun.

Challenging steep uphill hike, but super rewarding once you reach the top!

Overall, this is mostly a paved walk with nice views at the top. I would suggest this to anyone staying in the Waikiki area and looking for a close by outing that is not too strenuous; we walked from Waikiki to the top of the hill. As many mentioned, the area is packed with tourists, so early arrival is suggested.

This is a very challenging hike but completely worth the sore legs after. The views are incredible; pictures just don’t do it justice. It is a high traffic area but is dog friendly. I saw people carrying infants in baby carriers, although they had to be in great shape. I had more difficulty coming down than getting up because my legs were so tired. Start early, bring a hat and plenty of water.

This was a fun hike and would rate as moderate to easy. My wife is 7 months pregnant and we went up and down in about an hour, stopping to take pictures.

Very beautiful hike with the enormous variety of plants and trees that flourish in this nice climate. Make sure to use some mosquito repellent before you go and wear shoes with a good grip. January 4th 2019 it was very busy, muddy, and slippery.
It inspired us to go on hikes around where we live in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada CA.

This was the first trail we took our dogs on and it went really well. Definitely be aware that there are hogs in this area if you are bringing dogs. The path is nicely traveled but not to busy. We arrived around 9am and completed around 11:30am. There are a few sections that are close to the edge and it was a tad slippery but other than that great hike.

My husband and I very first hike in Hawaii. we chose Diamond Head. enjoyed the views. Too busy on MLK day. Could not get a good leave.

Short, moderate hike! There was way too many people though. It was difficult to take pictures at the top. But the view was well worth it.

on Ehukai Pillboxes

As a 57 year old out of shape woman I found this hike to be pretty hard. It was worth it though to see the view from the second pillbox. Do not go inland to find the second pillbox- follow the L shaped trail map along the ridge. You will end up heading down at the end towards the second pillbox.

It was so hard to climb, but the scenery at the top is wonderful enough to make you forget all about it. Especially the sunset from the top is really the best.

Rocks can be slippery but footing is solid overall. Good workout; nice morning hike.

I was more annoyed at having my pace set by the 8,000 people ahead of me than I was thrilled about the views. There are better less crowded views on the island.

so pretty!!!!! and long!!!

Not too far but you will definitely feel the elevation. Very rocky and muddy and be mindful of other hikers.

The falls are beautiful, but we were more drawn to the views along the trail leading up to it, and another trail going through the bamboo woods up to the left of the falls. The views were gorgeous, some looked like they were straight out of Jurassic Park. However, because of the easy accessibility of this trail, it gets crowded.

On the day we went hiking here, we later found out there had been a big land slide by the upper waterfall and that some hikers were missing. Hence, be careful with climbing higher and going off the trails, especially after rain. Take the warning signs seriously!

For someone as out of shape as I am this hike wasn’t that difficult. It can be really steep in some spots but it levels out, the views? Incredible. You have a view of the H3 and it makes the hike well worth it, some reviews say the hike is close to 6 miles well that is inaccurate. It is in fact close to the 4.2 miles like the sign says. The trail is trafficked and everyone we passed was friendly and uplifting- we saw several kids doing it too so if they can do it- you can too!!

absolutely stunning views of oahu at the top. wear a hat. bring water. the sun is hot and unrelenting. the pathway is paved for a little and then becomes uneven rock. i definitely would recommend it to anyone. my handicapped dad didn’t go to the summit but was able to walk up to about 700ft elevation.

Lots of people but well worth it with the views at the top. Plus the bunker walk through is a trip to the past.

Trail starts off steep and muddy so be sure to grab a walking stick at the beginning of the trail. After the muddy start the trail dries up and flattens our with a few random steep areas. The view at the top is breathtaking and worth the hike.

Wear appropriate shoes if you're not experienced or tend to be a little clumsy like me. Steep but well worth it. Lots of people but it's a short beautiful tropical hike worth visiting.

Can get a little muddy but definitely worth the hike. Easy to do and a definite must if you are visiting Hawaii.

Easy hike but heavily trafficked. This hike is definitely a good start of you are planning on coming to Hawaii to hike. Great views from the top. If you aren't used to hiking you will get tired and the stairs may seem like they can beat you but you got this.

Short trail with an easy to follow path and lots of shade. Not a whole lot to see, although many of the trees were labeled. There’s a nice view of Kaneohe Bay at the lookout. It’s really more of a nature walk than a hike and the signs warning about ticketing if you park at all on the paved road made me nervous.

very difficult but a good workout

From Manoa Falls, I went up Aihualama. At the end of Aihualama where it meets Pauoa Flats, I took the right and headed towards a lookout point with a bench. Once past Manoa Falls, I hardly came across anyone.
