  • This is a nice trail to hike, but it has become so popular that it is way over crowded on Weekends. It's best to hike it in the early mornings, when you are more likely to see some wildlife. 
  • While visiting Evergreen recently, we made time in the afternoon to visit Maxwell Falls, and are so glad we did!! It was a fantastic hike!!! We were there on a weekday, and it was not crowded. We park...  read more »
  • This is a nice hike, with either a pretty flat part, from the upper trailhead, or a bit of a climb, from the lower trailhead. The trails are all wide and smooth. There are quite a few safe places for ...  read more »
  • Great trail! I don't know what all these complaints are about. There was little-to-no trash, no dog poop, and my hike was in relative solitude. Most of the hike is shaded, so no worries about getting too much sun for you or your kids. The waterfall isn't huge, but still nice to come upon. I went on a Thursday afternoon and took the trail to the falls, up the cliff loop, and back down. Of course it's going to be busier on weekends. Wear good shoes, no flip-flops. There aren't any trash cans, so don't bring your garbage up unless you're responsible enough to take it back to your car. Definitely coming back.
  • Oh man. Ok. If you are the kind of person that enjoys hiking to be in solitude and enjoy Mother Nature, this is NOT the hike for you. I didn't listen to the bad reviews of this trail, and went anyway because I'm usually not too picky...but it was a mad house. People smoking cigarettes, eating fast food & throwing their trash on the trail, dog poop everywhere. There were probably about 3 times I felt the solitude I was looking for but it was soonly interrupted by a tourist/a kid crying/someone smoking/someone complaining. People were mainly rude except obviously for the small few. When you get to the waterfall, you can't even see it because it's blocked by 50+ people all huddled around it. Tourist trap. Never again.
  • It's a great hike...until you get to the waterfall. It's crowded with people and kids. People playing their music and kids throwing rocks. It really defeats the purpose of the hike and being out in the wonderful nature that Colorado has to offer.
  • This was a terrific hike even for our 2 year old, though she didn't walk the entire way. Plenty of tree cover to keep you shaded and cool on a hot day. It's 2 miles to the falls and has a moderate incline.
  • The fire rescue crew is off the chain! Great people. I owe each and everyone of you dinner! Thanks for all of the hard work
