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.

super easy, path is laid out for you. relaxing hike through all the greenery and bamboo. my small dog did the hike with ease so if you have a small pet and are worried about what they are capable of, this is the hike for them.

Nice little in and out trail. Heavily trafficked. Rated easy but can get slippery and muddy at times. Waterfall at the end wasn't super impressive. Great for kids!

Nicely maintained trail with waterfall pool. This trail was really moderate. Lots of people enjoying the pool even though signs clearly say stay out.

This trail is great for all ages and all fitness levels. You get a nice easy walk while listening to the birds and seeing a rain forest. The water fall at the end is very thin however it's beautiful.

SUPER slippery when wet. Several rain showers while we were there. Waterfall endpoint isn't as impressive but the hike was nice and not too hard. Bring a walking stick!
