The Hike

Manoa Falls Trail continues to be one of the most popular hikes on Oahu. It’s a relatively easy hike, though if your going to try it after a rainy day expect to get muddy and maybe even fall in the mud if you don’t watch your step. It’s also very accessible from the city, located at the northern end of the Manoa neighborhood, only 15-20 minutes from the tourist mecca of Waikiki. At the end of hike you’ll reach the 150 ft waterfall that comes down from the mountains to collect in a pool at the bottom. The best time to hike Manoa Falls is during the rainy season (roughly from November to March) when the waterfall will be at it’s biggest.
