Manoa Falls - March 26, 2012

Manoa Falls is one of the most popular hikes on the island of Oahu.  The trail is short and easy, ending at at a beautiful 150-foot waterfall in the back on Manoa Valley.  The trail is regularly maintained by the state making for a well-defined and easy-to-follow trail.  Because of its popularity, you'll be lucky to find yourself hiking alone.

The total in-and-out mileage along the Manoa Falls trail is around 1.6 miles.  Parking is available at the Lyon Arboretum for $5.00.  If you prefer to not to pay for parking, there is free parking down the street along Manoa Road.  Another way to get to Manoa Falls is the Aihualama trail; that route, also maintained by the state, is a tad longer and offers up a bit more of a workout.
