Manoa Falls, don't come, don't know. It's amazing. Although it's better to come here on sunny days, I caught the heavy rain when I came to the waterfall. It's not interesting. There are raincoats and raincoats under the waterfall for two dollars each. Primitive forest scenery, "Jurassic Park" many exterior scenes are taken here, although the scenery is beautiful, but the road is not very easy to walk, pitted, rainy days slippery, must wear skid-proof shoes, or climbing shoes, normal climbing takes more than 30 minutes, rainy days more than 40 minutes. If you join a group to play, you can save unnecessary trouble. If you travel freely, there are buses, but it takes 30 minutes to get to the foot of the mountain. It's OK to drive by yourself. There's also a parking lot on this side. It's better to have dinner. There's also a restaurant under the hill. It's all simple food. It's better to bring some water with you. You must drink water when you climb the hill. Pure wild parks, without tickets, are worth coming.
Crossing the mountains, walking in the primitive forest to visit Manoa Falls, the scenic waterfall, the water flowing down the mountain is very cool. Here gathers the passengers to play in the water, the photography is a good place. Experience the beautiful environment and feel the comfort of nature.
The Manoa Falls Trail, located in Koolau Mountain Range, Hawaii, is about 2 kilometers long. It is not only one of the most worthwhile hiking routes in Hawaii, but also the scene for movies and TV dramas such as Jurassic Park and Lost. President Barack Obama took his family on a hike during Christmas 2013. 。
The mountains are cool, and the waterfall lies deep in the valley. It can only be seen on foot. The whole mountain path is about 1.5 miles long, starting at the entrance of Manoa Falls Trail. It's less than two hours'walk back and forth. Along the way, we can see: the huge ferns in the tropical rainforest, the thousand-year-old trees that more than a dozen people can embrace, the picturesque streams and unique species that can not be found elsewhere. This route is also the scene of Hollywood movies such as Jurassic Park and Lost. The waterfall is not big, like a thin white ribbon hanging from the cliff, very beautiful.
For visitors to Oahu who are staying in or around Waikiki, Manoa Falls might just be the easiest to find, and most rewarding little hike in the area. Only a ten minute or so drive north from Waikiki, this approximately half mile long hike proceeds from the back of the lush Manao Valley to a spectacular waterfall. The trek is generally suitable to all comers, although it can get a little bit treacherous (to at least your footwear) after heavy rains. Still, heading up after some rain will ensure that the waterfall is cascading magnificently. More adventurous hikers can keep the fun going by proceeding along another leg of the trail that can be accessed at the falls and leads to the scenic Pauoa flats, but the experience of making it to the falls alone is more than worth the easy trip.
Manoa Falls is very close to Honolulu and can be reach by car in about 15-20 minutes. This is not an easy hike and families with small ones should not try to venture up to the falls. It is very wet, muddy and slippery but once you get there the view is worth the walk. Recommend you were good sneakers that can be rinsed off or water socks with good gripping. The walk up to the falls is just as breath taking as the fall itself. Lots of beautiful and unsually plants along the way. It may rain on you so bring alont a poncho or and umbrella just in case. Well worth the adventure and this one just few of accessible waterfalls on the islands so do not miss your chance to see it close up.
The hike up to Manoa Falls is pretty easy, but it's usually quite muddy, so wear sensible hiking shoes. Even small children should be able to make it up there though. You see lots of lush plants on the way up, & maybe meet a feral rooster or two.At the top you'll be rewarded with a view of the narrow, but fairly tall falls, and a pool that I expect you're not supposed to bathe in, but many do. I don't know if he still does it, but I met a local up there who hikes in each day and leaves a few crystals around for people to find.
This hike starts in the middle of an inconspicuous neighborhood, so don't be alarmed, you're in the right place. I came here several times during the short time I lived in Hawaii, bringing visitors here each time. It was always worth it. The hike isn't long, and it is a relatively easy hike, despite tons of mosquitoes during wet months. Every step along the way is beautiful, as are the falls.
Manoa offers beautiful hiking excursions with its very central location and lush greenery. The ever-moist area means it can get a bit muddy and slippery, so bring along a walking stick for support. There are easier trails for novices. And, as always, avoid drinking the water.
