Aloha from Manoa

Aloha! The weather was perfect… But wait, when is the weather not perfect in Hawaii? Alright, so it wasn’t drizzling or raining :) So we got in our car & headed toward Manoa. Just minutes behind University of Hawaii, you’ll find yourself deep inside Manoa Valley. From here, get ready for a green, relaxing hike.

Lavahut - Manoa Falls Trail Hike - Steps

Follow the abundant hike lovers or just let the weathered trail guide you in. You'll see paths like these and you may even go under some trees.

Lavahut - Manoa Falls Hike - Fungi on Tree

Take your time & enjoy your surroundings... You might even find some fungi growing on nearby fallen trees like these ones. Pretty cool, right?

Lavahut - Manoa Falls Trail Hike - Bamboo Forest

Go a little deeper in & you'll find yourself surrounded by lush green bamboo trees. Pause for a break & take in the sounds of leaves rustled by the wind & the chirps of birds singing in the forest. 

Lavahut - Manoa Falls Trail Hike - Waterfall

Take your time, enjoy the scenery & follow the sound of water… Soon enough, you’ll find yourself in front of a waterfall (a small one on dry days, a bigger one if it’s been raining).

We love hikes like this, don’t you?
