We started out at the Lower Maxwell Falls Trailhead, on Brook Forest Road. This trailhead is approx 2.6 miles from the turnoff from Rd. 73. It is marked, but the sign is off the road a bit. Good sized parking area. From here the trail is clear until you get to an intersection with a sign post (sign missing however) 5 trails intersect here. We decided to go straight ahead and this will lead you to Maxwell Falls. If you take the left trail, it will also take you to Maxwell Falls via the Upper Trailhead. I don't know where the right trail leads. After having a nice lunch at the falls, we took the trail that leaves the Upper Trailhead back to the intersection and then back to the car. (see my GPS route)
This is a nice easy hike, no problem for my girlfriend's 2 children, aged 4 and 6. My dog also enjoyed the hike and there was ready access to water for him. Dogs, however, are NOT allowed off leash on this trail (contrary to another review). This is clearly marked on the trailhead sign.
