Manoa Falls

June 8, 2008

A brilliant two-hour hike that’s just – and only just – outside Honolulu. It really put living here into a new perspective. One moment you’re driving through Manoa, a valley neighborhood just behind the U of H campus and the next you are right smack in the middle of a rainforest. The transition – or lack thereof – is really that sudden.

The hike’s destination is the falls, which is a moderately impressive, Hokusai-esque 150 ft. single fall down a vertical rockface. For me, the real beauty was just enjoying the otherworldly vegetation at every turn along the hike, the sheer uncontrolled wildness of it all.
