The hike is a total of 1.7 miles with an elevation gain of 633ft. The trail is paved a majority of the way, then the trail terrain gets rocky and quite slipperyand when raining, this hike is considered moderate. We encourage guests who are confident in their ability to join!

"Our guide arrived to pick us up in an immaculate van and explained the whole trip as we drove to falls. He pointed out some very interesting facts, landmarks and fauna along the way. Was probably the best tour guide we have had in decades. He ensured everyone was safe and walking at a comfortable pace and had answers to our questions along the path. We recommend Nature and You as your go to tour guides!!!"

The Manoa Falls Trail winds through a tropical forest used in many blockbuster films and TV shows, including Jurassic Park and Lost.
It is a fun and easy hike suitable for people of all ages!
