TRAIL DESCRIPTION

This is a fairly easy trek with minimal elevation gain. Maxwell Falls is notoriously busy in the summer months with a lot of trail traffic. The approach to falls lends itself to a great walk in the woods with some rock formations and pines along the way. The falls themselves were rather small when we visited and (hopefully) show some more power in the late spring with rapid snowmelt helping.
