One of the things on my to do list while in Hawaii was a hike. I had originally planned on two hikes, Manoa Falls and Diamond Head. These are the two main hikes that everyone suggests. I decided that I shouldn’t hike on my own. My sister and I had time for one hike together and decided on Manoa Falls. The guide books call it an easy hike. I’m not sure if I agree.
The hike is about .8 miles and it’s in the lush, wet, rainforest. It’s hard to believe that there is rainforest just a short drive from Waikiki. Everything was very green and very muddy.
It rained most of our hike. I was super glad that I had packed my hiking poles and boots for the trip.
I loved the scenery. The photo on the right is bamboo.
Once we reached the end of the trail by the bottom of the falls, we took a few photos.
Then, we headed back down.
I was super glad to do this hike, but I thought it was difficult due to the wet and muddy surfaces. I’d highly recommend it.
We were happy to head back to the hotel for showers when we were done.
