Waimano Falls Trail
2.9 miles 810ft elevation Out & Back Trail
AllTrails lists it as Hard
The falls are located in the center of Oahu near Pearl City. The trailhead is located at the end of Komo Mai Drive. You can park along the road, but don't park past the no parking signs at the end of the cul-de-sac. You start on the Manana Ridge Trail where you will walk along a shaded path that follows the ridge, with some periodic views of the Manana Valley and the Waimano Valley. After a ways, the trail heads downhill on a steep and muddy descent to the floor of Waimano Valley and to the falls.
Hopefully you will get lucky and find a parking spot on the street somewhere
Here is the trailhead for the Manana Ridge Trail
Nice wide trail in the beginning
First view of the valley
You will pass this gated building.... maybe power station or water station?
As I said, you will go up and down following the ridge
Another peek out of the trees
Nice uphill section full of roots
Yes.... more roots uphill
Yes... take a right to the falls
Can get pretty muddy in places depending on when it rained last
Go left at this junction. You can go right to te falls also but it is said to be harder
Starting the steep descent down to the valley and the falls
Here is the lower falls with a nice size tidepool and rope swings
Use the ropes to climb up the the upper falls
...And some ropes to help you climb down a small rock fall to the upper falls
Looking down at the lower falls
A quick selfie and its time to head back after a little rest and water break!
