Welcome to the Maxwell Falls Lower Trail; a 3.9-mile (round trip) hike located in the heart of Arapaho National Forest near Evergreen. What is it about this easier hike that we love most? Is it the fact that the elevation gain is a mere 644 feet? The rocky cliffs? Or maybe it’s the cool and shady trees you walk through the entire trek? All of these factors are great, but our favorite thing about Maxwell Falls has to be…

…the tranquil creeks, waterfalls, and streams you encounter along the way! Trust us; when you first begin hiking, there is nothing better than seeing beautiful bodies of water that will make you want to come back for more!
