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.
