This short trail it’s a good family hike with kids, and at the end they can jump in the pools by the waterfall. The 1st mile it’s very easy, basically flat walking until you get to the junction with Manana Trail. Here you take right...More
Well I'm 4 months prego and decided that I could do this trail. I was wrong. I'm healthy and run about 3 miles a day before baby and now about 1ish with baby inside but this trail was hard. You do a lot of climbing...More
If you are in ohau and like to find places that are not too crowded with tourest then this is a great place to go. The drive is about 30min north of Waikiki. The hike down to the waterfalls and pools is about 1.5 miles...More
My husband and I decided to try out this hike. We went 3 days after a rainy day (15cm of rain). This would guarantee us clean water in the pools and a running fall! Be prepared for a difficult, slippery and muddy hike. At slow...More
This was another sensational trail that really worked my cardio and upper arms as there were ropes involved in order to make it safely to the pool, especially since it was raining majority of the time.
The walk is surrounded by beautiful hawaiian forest that was super lush and dense when we went. As it had been raining the past few days the falls were very fast and the river was full.
We met some other visitors who showed us photos...More
This is an AMAZING trail. The views are beautiful and the pools at the end are so much fun (if you time your hike for a sunny day after there has been rain). That said, it's a difficult hike for beginners and small kids. There...More
On Apr 5, 2017, there was no water over falls and pool was stagnant. Disappointing after the challenge to get there.
For first mile, fairly easy trail. After that, downhill and muddy. Last 1/2 mile is scrambling over rocks on steep decline. Would be beautiful...More
As 2 slightly overweight 50 year old parents of a 17 year old son, we wanted a hike that was adventurous but not too difficult. We are somewhat active but not in the best of physical shape. This hike was perfect! If you watch your...More

Yes it's safe. The upper pool is probably safer for kids, as it is not deep enough for adults to swim in. The lower pool is adequate for adults to swim in, and there is a gradual decline so no need for hesitations, if you... More
Yes it's safe. The upper pool is probably safer for kids, as it is not deep enough for adults to swim in. The lower pool is adequate for adults to swim in, and there is a gradual decline so no need for hesitations, if you had any. However, as you swim towards the center of the lower pool, it gets pretty deep and you won't be able to touch the bottom (my husband jumped from the top of the rocks, above where the ropes are, into the center of the pool and he was unable to touch the bottom). So I wouldn't allow kids to swim there unless they're adequate swimmers.
Make sure wear water shoes as there are a lot of rocks in both pools.

The manana trail versus the waterfall is clearly marked by a sign. The only time we weren't sure which way to go was when we got close to the falls- there is a T in the trail- take the left to the falls. There were a FEW trail markers- ribbon tied on a tree I believe. The pools are tiered- so they are basically connected by the waterfall. Whatever you do- make sure there has been enough rain in the week before you go. We only had one morning of rain and therefore there was no waterfalls and the pools were pretty shallow.
