MANOA FALLS TRAIL TO CLOSE ONE DAY FEB. 13 FOR REMOVAL OF DOWNED TREE, OLD COMPOSTING TOILETS

HONOLULU —  The popular Manoa Falls hiking trail will be closed all day, on Monday, February 13, while state forestry crews remove a 100-foot fallen Albizia tree, and aging composting toilets at the trailhead.

Removal of these items will be done by a contractor and overseen by DLNR Division of Forestry and Wildlife crews or Na Ala Hele Trails and Access Program staff.  The tree fell during a recent windy period and is now lying over the trail and poses a safety hazard to trail users.

The toilet structure with two stalls was donated by the Hawaii Tourism Authority. 

“Closed trail” signs will be posted at the trailhead and the parking lot. Staff will be standing guard and turning hikers away.  The trail is expected to reopen Tuesday morning.
