Maxwell Falls Reviews & Ratings

  • Great hike, we started at the lower loop, hiked up to the falls then doubled back. We arrived at 9:30 and needed to park in overflow parking. My 9 & 6 yo loved it, as did our two dogs. TONS of berries on the trail, our kids loved seeing them and it was a great opportunity to talk about respecting the forest and its inhabitants. There were plenty of others on the trail but all dogs were leashed and everyone was out enjoying nature. My watch said it was about 5 miles round trip but maybe I doubled back a few times with the dogs and kids.

  • Colorado hiking trails are gorgeous, kinda no matter where you go... We ran into some folks heading back out while we were headed in & they warned us there wasn't any falls to see but we kept on & hiked to the location of said "falls". They were right. We saw nothing resembling a "waterfall"... But, regardless, the scenery was gorgeous & the fresh air worth the walk. If you're visiting this state & anyone suggests a hike, JUST SAY YES! It's almost impossible to be disappointed, no matter where you go...

  • Great trail that people of all ages and expertise can enjoy. Little children all the way up to grandparents can all have fun reveling in these majestic waterfalls outside of Evergreen. The loop is about 5 miles total and is moderately flat the entire way with around 1000K in vertical gain. Make sure to bring a couple bottles of water and a snack to enjoy whilst dipping your toes into the icy mountain run off!

  • Moderate hike, parts of the trail you will be more focused on footing (rocks and tree roots) than enjoying the views. My mom visited from Michigan (basically sea level) and same day she arrived we went for the hike, quite a few stops for altitude and out of breath, but just taking it at your own pace and drinking water you can make this hike happen.

  • I took my 9 and 11 year old and ended up walking 5 miles. We followed the AllTrails app and did the whole loop. It was so fantastic! Plenty of shade and the tiny waterfall was super refreshing after a hot day of hiking! Definitely a must do if you’re wanting something short and easy on a hot summer day!
