A short hike to the base of Manoa Falls, passing through movie scene locations from Jurassic Park and Lost This short hike will take you to 100ft Manoa Falls. The trail can be quite muddy, so make sure to wear proper shoes (you will be sorry if you wear flip flops, because your toes will easily slip around once they get muddy. Several scenes from the TV show LOST were filmed here, as was parts of Jurassic Park (you can see posters in the building with bathrooms and food service). Unfortunately, you cannot swim in the pool at the base of the waterfall, but the view alone justifies the easy hike. There is a $5 fee to park.
