MANOA (HawaiiNewsNow) - The popular Manoa Falls Trail got a makeover this weekend.

Volunteers from the Sierra Club and the Department of Land and Natural Resources spent the day doing patch up work on the family-friendly trail.

They replaced signs, cleared out stream debris, and smoothed out the unstable, rocky parts of the path.

Workers say the repairs are much needed because the trail is so heavily used.

"This trail experiences 300 to 400 people a day.  I think on last year's Labor Day, we had about 800 hikers here, just on that day alone, so there's a lot of foot traffic and we have a large spectrum of experienced hikers", said Chelsea Arnott of the Na Ala Hele Trails.

More restoration is coming for Manoa Falls.

DLNR recently got a $100,000 grant to beautify the trail.  That work is expected to finish by March.
