Photographer's Note

A nice thing about this trail is you're shaded by trees for pretty much the entire journey. At the start of the trail, you'll see and smell eucalyptus trees, and then further up you'll encounter gnarly, old-growth banyan trees, tropical flowers, and eventually a bamboo grove. What remains constant is the breathtaking, panoramic view of the misty green valley as you hike uphill. It's easy to see why producers of the TV show Lost and the movie Jurassic Park filmed certain scenes right here — the mystical quality of the location easily transports your mind to another time and place.

Hawaii is full of microclimates, and Manoa Valley is a good example — it's considered a rainforest. So even if it's bone-dry and sunny just a few miles away in Waikiki, you can expect Manoa Valley to be drizzly or downright rainy
