Falling more than 46 m (150 ft), Manoa Falls sparkles against a sheer rock face. Take a 2.4 km (1.5 mi) hike through tall trees with twisted trunks and thick greenery to reach the falls. The pathway is often slippery, so wear shoes with a good grip. Then be prepared to take these shoes off to wade in the shallow pool at the base of the waterfall. Our Honolulu trip planning site makes visiting Manoa Falls and other Honolulu attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Very accessible by car from Waikiki/Honolulu. Pretty decent elevation gain though so you should wear decent footwear. If you are in decent shape and the parking lot is available you can do it one way....  more

  • Decent little hike. It is only like 1.8 miles round trip. A little muddy and some steep parts but not bad. The water fall was a little small and disappointing but the pool at the bottom was cool to sit in.
  • The hike was good. The distance wasn't too long, and the grade wasn't too difficult. There was plenty of covering to protect from the sun or the random shower storm. We really enjoyed the view of the mountains and the forest at the beginning of the hike. The waterfall was average at best. We've seen some more impressive waterfalls in Canada and Taiwan. But the view and experience up the trail was memorable. Also, we were glad the guy collecting the parking fees had mosquito spray for sale because you will need it.
