When the first Polynesians arrived on Oahu, Hawaii, it was mainly forest. Most people who don’t live in Hawaii or who haven’t visited don’t realize that there is still tropical rainforest on Oahu. The forest of Oahu is full of eucalyptus trees, Koa hardwoods, Norfolk pine trees, banana trees, ginger, coffee shrubs, and so much more. The Manoa Falls hike is a remarkable hike that lets you explore a part of this rainforest.

A few notes about Manoa Falls:

Go early in the morning (before 8 AM) and you will mostly have the trail to yourself.

Manoa Falls is an easy hike (nothing like the world’s most dangerous hike!), great for families, and dogs. The hike is just under a mile, and will take about an hour round trip.

Wear mosquito spray, and clothes and shoes that you don’t mind getting muddy. This is a rainforest, so there is mud.

Parking in the parking lot is $5, or you can park in the neighborhood and hike a little further to the trail. For directions, go here.
