Maxwell Falls is a pretty little waterfall hike, great for the whole family. There are two parking areas/entrances to the trails. lower, and upper.
From the lower trailhead the distance to Upper Maxwell Falls is about 2 miles. From the lower trailhead after crossing the foot bridge stay to the left and follow the signs and the river upwards to go directly to Upper Maxwell Falls, or you can go right to go up Cliff Loop Trail which will meet back with Maxwell Falls trail just above the falls, making a nice little loop.
There are multiple little falls along this trail with a lot of places to pull off and enjoy the relaxing sound of the water. This is a very popular trail, don't expect too much seclusion, especially on weekends. And please remember to leave no trace and pack out your trash as well as any other trash you find along the way.
There are two parking areas for this trail, Upper and Lower. They both fill up fast as this is a popular trail. Upper usually fills a bit later since it is a longer hike to the falls. As always, arrive early!
