to do Map

Beautiful loop with stunning views and some good climbs to get your heart rate up. You can also do a 4 mile portion of it, if you take the paved reservoir trail for 1.25 miles and then take a connector trail up the hill.

Tip: Do this one in fall or winter and skip right after a rainfall since it will be too muddy.

Awesome vegetation. Beautiful hike. Paid $5 for parking at a nearby snack bar place. Had restrooms and a place to wash off your shoes. Was a little muddy (December) and slippery in some places.

Be advised - the parking lot is temporarily closed for renovations.

on Manoa Falls Trail

Lovely short hike up to the amazing falls. $5 for parking at trailhead and was fairly busy on a Monday 10th December. The path is very easy to follow and is a little slippy at times and rather muddy.

Took my 4 year old on this today. She did amazing. The views are breathtaking

Muddy, in and out of rivers, forests, all kinds of trees and flowers with a beautiful waterfall at the end! Not very physically difficult but it is slippery and that can slow you down a bit, increasing time to about 3-4 hours. So worth it! One of my favorites

So Beautiful but so heavily trafficked. Go super early on a rainy day. Very easy

what a great hike! incredible views! wear proper shoes!!!

an easy but muddy trail. beautiful waterfall at the end after a wonderful jungle like trail. saw many folks with inadequate footwear...this trail has muddy slippery spots! please dress properly and keep an easy hike fun.

If you want a hike that gives you views of the ocean and coast and not terribly touristy or hard, this is it.

* Steep from the get go. Bring actual footwear with grip
* Gets windy, people lost hats and shades. I almost did
* Past the second pill box is really overgrown. Bring a machete a wear long pants.

I went to the fourth "pill box" at the 1 mile mark is tiny compared to the first 3. (#1 is by itself, 2 and 3 are together) and after that the trail is really overgrown. I saw some folks ahead of me really struggling so I turned back as I didn't have a machete, or long pants.

It was raining and windy, but the views were totally worth it. The trail can be slippery when wet so would recommend good shoes.

Incredible trail, not too crowded and great photo ops if you are into that, especially if you aren’t afraid to adventure.

Always a fun family hike and enjoy the beautiful views!

Lovely 360 views, headed here for sunrise and was still quite busy. The trail on from the pillboxes was pretty quite. It rained while we were there and the path did get pretty slippy and would recommend shoes with a fair amount of grip. Also on the way down there is a lot of small paths branching off so use all trails to get back down. It was a Saturday and there was a guy in a car just before the trail head ensuring people don’t park there but there is plenty of parking along the road further on down.

I went right after sunrise and was the only person on the trail. It felt like I had been dropped into another world! The foliage was incredible and the views were wonderful. I would highly recommend this trail but a few things to know: 1. Bring bug-spray! There are tons of mosquitos 2. The trail is very very slippery even when it hasn’t rained in a while. It’s basically thin layers of mud on smooth rocks most of the way up. Wear shoes with grips and keep your hands free to help with balance in case you slip.

Long, winding, but paved. Friendly hike, nice views of the ocean!

A nice and family-friendly hike that offers a beautiful waterfall as a prize at the end. Witnessed a proposal.

good trail and nice waterfall, not my favourite hike, but its a good one.

Great hike & nice cliff jump options at the end.

The steep section will lead you to a fishing outpost.

Really great views!

Steep, muddy, beautiful waterfall,

Steep slippery trailhead. Beutjful views from the ridge.

Did this back in March with mom and brother, absolutely gorgeous and easy hike. When we went there were a lot of people at the waterfall end but the small trek was well worth it for how beautiful it was during.

Good family hike and beautiful views. Didn’t think the waterfall was very impressive but the walk through the trees and foliage were awesome. Bring $5 cash for parking.

Always a fun hike to do! Scenic and a fun discovery each time. Go down the coastal trail and end up at China Beach! A must!

Good hike. Trail was too steep on cliff side for my liking.... back tracked twice, so it was 6 miles... loved the wind!

Pretty views and hike

Still one of the best hikes on the island. Safe hike some muddy areas. Nice waterfall at the end. There are additional trails near the top but they are pretty long so be prepared if you plan on hiking to the top.
