While not terribly steep, hiking Manoa Falls Trail requires navigating over some rocks and gravel, so those with knee problems should keep this in mind. Barefoot hikers should also consider that some spots hold a lot of gravel, so you may want to pack some trail shoes to use when you reach these areas.
You’ll enjoy beautiful scenery during the 1.6 mile hike, but the real payoff comes at the end when you reach Manoa Falls. Manoa Falls is a 150-foot tall waterfall that spills into a lovely pool at its base. Bring your camera as you will surely want to capture images of the falls. (Note: The pool may look like a tempting place to take a swim, but this is not advisable due to high bacteria levels.)
After your hike you can stop into the Rainbow’s End Snack Shop. You’ll find things you may need for your next excursion, such as reef shoes and other gear, as well as refreshments and snacks. One of their most popular items is their shaved ice. With a perfect texture and many flavors, this is a well-deserved treat after your Manoa Falls adventure.
