Maxwell Falls is a nice enjoyable hike and is one of the first trails to open in the spring. It is a nice enjoyable hike along Maxwell Creek. The falls are at there best this time of year also.
This is a relatively easy trail that opens early in the spring and stays open later in the fall. The only one on the Clear Creek Ranger District.
