Lyon’s Arboretum Directions->Drive all the way down Manoa Road -> yes you will reach the end of the neighborhood and start driving into a small forest -> keep driving -> Tell the parking guy you will park at Lyon’s Arboretum -> Drive pass the little restraunts to eat and the parking guy -> You will reach a gate to your right for Manoa Falls and a long driveway on your left for Lyon’s Arboretum -> Drive up the driveway and park in their lot -> Sign in at the visitor’s office which is at the end of the lot -> I suggest getting a map while you are in there -> The trail starts at the end of the parking lot where you see a gravel trail.
Lyon’s Arboretum is a great family activity. You may get your trail maps at the office. You will see many rare plants from around the world and birds. Please keep in mind that picking flowers is not allowed. Enjoy the botanical gardens!
My favorite place on Earth.
