Love this trail and the surrounding trails.

Beautiful day and a great hike! Thought it would be super crowded from all the cars but actually had quite a bit of solitude and some friendly passing visitors. The trail can definitely be confusing, everyone else we talked with was checking in on the direction of trails or had made a wrong turn. Other than that, it was a wonderful trail!

Great hike when you have a couple of hours to kill. Well maintained. Moderate traffic. Very dog friendly. It was fun for my pup and I to get our feet wet once we got to the falls! Definitely go in the spring vs the summer to see the falls.

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

We love biking out here! Great views for little work.

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

Lovely hike along the creek. The parking lot is up the mountain after Helen Hunt Falls. Hike through the gate then follow that dirt road until you see a little brown 622 marker on the right. Take that for Seven Bridges. if you keep going up on the main dirt road you'll end up at St.Mary's Falls

A little difficult for an easy trail but well worth it.

Beautiful hike today on 4/19. Packed snow and ice almost completely covering entire trail up to the end of the trail. Definitely helped to use my yak tracks. I didn’t slip at all or have any difficulty while using them (besides the altitude and the entirely uphill trail-lol). Not too much of an elevation gain but the altitude definitely makes it more challenging. I was truly surprised by how many other people were on the trail and the fact that 95% of those people were very ill prepared for hiking. I’m here were people in shorts and almost everyone else was wearing either tennis shoes or casual shoes. No wonder I saw so many people falling. Please be prepared for the ice/snow and weather

Hiked this early on a Sunday morning. Only saw 2 other hikers the first 6 miles, and they were on their way out. Very quiet and peaceful with the early start. Saw one deer and a group of 7 mountain goats. Lots of pretty views, mostly looking up at ridges and peaks surrounding the gulch. Lots of stream crossings on the 2 miles prior to the fork. All are easily traversed with stepping stones without getting wet. Different types of views once you emerge up on the ridge at the north end of the hike. Saw lots of hikers the final 2 miles as I left (they were coming in). Only 3 other cars in the lot at 7am when I arrived. When I left at 10:20am, the lot was overflowing onto the road.

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

The trail is in great condition right now and all the stream crossings are super easy to manuever. There are a number of wild flowers blooming right now, and the weather was excellent! This trail is the best for wearing the dogs out, but I saw a number of folks leave their dogs poop behind. Please pick up after your dog so this trail will continue to be enjoyable for everyone.

Great trail! Great views the whole way with a really good cardio workout. A lot of incline trails the whole way up so be prepared !

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.

Great hike, although a little crowded on the weekends.

Pretty easy hike along a creek most of the way. Only saw one other person the whole way.

Hiked this 3/17. Little Challenging but the views are incredible and completely worth it.

My first time hiking this trail. It was beautiful and challenging. I'm a beginner hiker so I found some spots difficult to navigate. Plus the trail wasn't marked well in some spots. Overall it was a great walk with beautiful scenery. I'll definitely hike it again soon.

I LOVED the flatirons! This was my first hike in Boulder as someone who was traveling from out of state. The elevation definitely makes this a bit more challenging, though I would say I struggled more with walking the inclined trail than the rocky terrain. Some of the areas were pretty challenging while others weren't so bad. Wear good hiking boots/shoes and you'll be set! The view from the top was fantastic.

Great workout and views on this hike. Not super crowded despite the parking lot overflowing. I would definitely do it again.

A great relaxing walk in the woods with enough incline to get the heart pumping. This trail has some diverse scenery: meadows, streams, woods, cliffs. Mostly dry with some mud.

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.

I don’t understand why this is rated hard and Sanitas is rated moderate.

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 hike close to Denver. You go downhill for the first half but the creek at the bottom was beautiful. Trail was clean and in good condition.

Went on a Sunday afternoon at about 11:30 AM. Parking was limited, trail was in good shape (kind of muddy), trek took about 2.5 hours. Was just challenging enough to make you feel like you really earned your beer(s) after.

was a good little hike, that uphill was killer but the views we're really lovely.

Went on a Sunday mid afternoon in April and wasn’t too busy. Took the loop clockwise to do the longer part downhill and the shorter/steeper part uphill and wasn’t bad at all. Mostly trekking through the peaceful forest until you get to a series of bridges over the stream at the bottom next to rocky slopes going up around you. Cool stuff but hear it gets crazy busy at times. Nice facilities at the trailhead. Right off 70 and next to bison herd spot. Pickle rick!!!!

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.

Have done this hike multiple times. Short but challenging as it a pretty consistent climb. The trail is clear of all snow and ice at this point. The nicer weather has brought out huge crowds lately, so go early! I had the top to myself today for several minutes around 930 AM. Great views at the top!
