The 1.5 mile (round trip) Manoa Falls trail gradually ascends through a lush rainforest ending at a beautiful waterfall. Manoa Falls has to be one of the most fascinating waterfalls on Oahu to be seen cascading 150 feet down the mountainside. Not many Oahu waterfalls are easy to travel to, that can also deliver such an impressive show!
This Oahu hike is located on one of the better maintained mountain Oahu trails and is only a 20-minute drive from Waikiki. The trail tends to be a bit muddy as it rains a lot in this region. In fact Manoa Valley receives the most rainfall on Oahu. This is an easy, relatively short hike that offers a maximum return on your time investment taking 1-2 hours for the round trip depending on how much time you take to soak in and capture the beauty.
