Maxwell Falls Lower Trail (#111)

  

A trail sign reads Maxwell Falls Trail No. 111 posted at the lower portion of Maxwell Falls Trail.

One of the easiest trails in the district, Maxwell Falls is a very enjoyable hike. It follows Maxwell Creek, and the waterfalls are at their best in the spring when the snow runoff is plentiful. Jefferson County law requires dogs be on a leash at all times while on this trail.
