This was my first experience with this trail and it was a good one overall.
I started at the Lower Falls trail-head. On a weekday morning, it was nearly full However, the Upper Falls trail was pretty empty of vehicles and might be a better place to start out.
The trail conditions were dry and well-maintained with a fair amount of traffic. I took the Cliff trails loop on the way down and this trail was rougher and steeper. Hikers looking for a harder work out should take this loop on the way up from the Lower Falls trail head.
Maxwell Falls is a nice stopping point but I was expecting a larger set of falls. Nice but not worth digging for the camera. I enjoyed the Cliff Loops trail much more. From the top, there are beautiful, wide views of the valley in all directions. This was the best part for me.

Nice hike to get my hiking legs back. Just enough of an incline to get the blood pumping, but not difficult. Walking along the water was nice and it helped lull the baby to sleep. Close to home and easy to find. Made for a great morning!

We just left the trail and it's wonderful. We started at the south end of the maxwell falls trail and hiked to the north end. From there, we took the upper maxwell falls trail back to the parking lot. The views are amazing and the waterfalls simply add that perfect touch to your hike. There is a very good chance of getting your feet wet at several crossing points. Enjoy!

Such a gorgeous hike! Several ponds and creeks. Satisfying incline, not too much.
