Perfect trail for dogs. Easy hike with nice forrest views. Spots of snow and sometimes muddy trail - not enough to bother me though.

Great hike, a little harder then we were thinking. Brought two labs along, they got muddy but the Arch gave a nice view and a great place to sit and eat a little snack. The hike it self was out and back, the way there being mostly up hill. I thought it was "moderate" but definitely some slippery rocks this time of year. Wish i had worn my hiking boots, no my old tennis shoes.

Varied terrain and views for a relatively short hike. I found the roads slick and muddy in the rain. The trails were in better shape than the roads! I camped overnight between the two buttes; bring all the water you need, as there is none on the trail. Prepare for complete exposure to the elements on the trail (sun, rain, snow, wind....) Amazing sunset and sunrise in a cool landscape.

Road closed through late June due to construction. Trail is four miles up.

Easy ‘walk in the park.’ About a third of the trail is paved, the rest is very well maintained dirt/sand pathway. Great Rocky Mountain and foothill views that stretch from Fort Collins to Golden. Compliments to the city of Longmont for creating this great local open space.

Great hike! Not hard but enjoyable! Make sure your dog is on the leash :)

We really love this trail. It is very pretty in fall- Mid October. Nice family walk and roomy trails.

Pretty boring trail, not a lot of access to the water, lots of people, little shade. I did enjoy seeing the goats though.

Gorgeous hike. Can be heavy traffic on the weekend but still not bad. The view is worth the hike.

Beautiful day on the trail. Even though this is ranked moderate it’s a tough one. The views from the arch are incredible.

Beautiful views. Save some energy for the final summit! We brought our two pups with us. Make sure to keep them close as the descend back down those rocks can be tricky! The red trail markers are a huge help. Look for those once you get to the summit beginning sign. Will definitely do this one again. Absolutely stunning.

some trails on the upper part aren't open yet, but you can still get a decent distance on the lower part. it is easy, dry, and quite relaxing.

Awesome hike! The climb was a fun challenge. Be ready for a crowd.

Loved it! Dogs were exhausted!

Great day for a hike. Beautiful park. A bit too crowded for me. I got here early so parking was not an issue but there are not a lot of spots to park.

Loved this hike! Seems like moderate to alittle more than moderate. I’m not sure if I would call it advanced but still challenging. I started just before sunrise and was able to watch the sunrise over Colorado Springs at the look out points that were about 10 minutes from the trailhead. Beautiful sight. After about 1.5 miles you reach the saddle before the final climb. I looked up and saw the summit of mt. muscoco and thought to myself “am I going up there!” The view from the top is amazing. My favorite trail so far!!

Great hike, super peaceful w beautiful views. The last mile was a little tricky because the snow was kinda deep and slushy- but we were fine w just hiking boots the whole time. Stopped and hung out at the bridge over the creek for awhile and it was very peaceful. Saw very few other people

Very flat hike. Good for beginners. You pretty much get the same view the whole way, but it's gorgeous! I only went about 3.5 miles in and turned around. Lots of traffic on a Sunday, but the trail is so wide hikers, bikers and runners can enjoy in harmony.

I got to the trailhead about 11am on a Monday (04/16) and only crossed paths with a handful of people. I loved that the trail offered areas of dense tree coverage, enormous boulders and rock walls, and views of the creek from above and at ground level. There were only a few icy spots left.
*I used this app to pull up directions on Google Maps however it directed me to turn too soon at a place where there was no actual turn. So, if you use google maps drive past where it tells you to make the final turn, go right at the fork and you'll find the sign for the parking lot on your right about .5 mile from where Google told you to turn.*

Decent short hike to a great view! Too many peope.

We went for a bike ride, it's a beautiful place, mountains, river, bighorn are some of the things you can enjoy on the walk, an easy way for the little ones.

Hiked yesterday. Packed snow and ice along the trail, but was able to do it in just hiking boots. Trail is pretty poorly marked so you definitely have to pay attention. Some scrambling toward the end of the trail. Views at the top are GORGEOUS!

Good trails well maintained.

My wife and I where looking for a nice trail to hike on and decided to tackle this Maxwell Falls Trail. We really loved it. This is an easy hike through the forest for anyone looking to get out and have a bit of fun.

Very rocky and in some areas eroded. Nice tree coverage. For the most part a lot of incline... up up up! Heavy traffic on the weekends, lots of families and dogs. The parking lot was full by 1 PM on Sunday.

Great for what we were looking for. Awesome views on the way to panorama point and at panorama point. Some spots were icy but we were wearing hiking boots and we were fine. Make sure to pay attention to signs to not go off the trail!

FYI: You have to pay $7 cash on entry to the park, and there is no human there to give change. You have to put your money in an envelope and drop it in a deposit slot that is too tiny to fit a bunch of coins in (we tried), so make sure you have correct change in bills!

The hike itself offers beautiful views of the mountains from a couple of different lookout points around midway, with most of the trail surrounded by forest. As of 4/15 there is a fair amount of mud on the trail and still a couple small patches of snow/ice, but nothing unmanageable in just boots. It was a nice hike to do with the dogs, and definitely on the easy side of moderate compared to other trails we’ve done. Enough incline to get your heart rate up in a couple places, but easy enough that we saw some people with kids on the trail. For us, hiking from Reverend Ridge campground to Panorama Point and back registered as 3.8 miles and 1 hr 45 mins.

Beautiful hike. Incline was a majority of the hike, would have been easier if I wasn't wearing an infant. We went on a Sunday and it was pretty crowded but still totally worth it. I would do this again but on a weekday.

It feels like 18,000 stairs. Moderate? The view at the top made it worth it. Very challenging hike. It was not crowded at all but the parking lot was full.

One of our favorites, and doesn't require having to go through the national park to get to the trail head. Loved the scramble at the top, and the windy views are worth it. Would not recommend this trail of you have small children that do not like scrambling.
