Manoa Falls – Where to hike on Oahu

Hiking Manoa falls is very convenient and a nice daily hike for tourist and locals. It’s a novice hike that is well maintained due to the foot traffic and volunteers. Keep da aina clean and remember to carry all possessions with you during the hike. If you happen to see trash, leave it on the ground because the trash could be contaminated. There is a Manoa Falls Hiking trail clean up crew that removes garbage with rubber gloves. When you walk through the bamboo go a little deeper to find all the names of Hawaiian Lovers carved on the bamboo. You may even spot a Jackson Chameleon!

Friendly Review

Manoa Falls is a wonderful hike and the trail is well maintained. Before you go be sure to get some bug spray at Rainbows End Snack Shop. It’s right before the hike, you can’t miss it. The Lions Arboretum is also a fun venture with a nice gazebo and open lawn. A great hike for all!
