Hike – Maxwell Falls (Moderate)

10517977_10152187722048199_629597899459175592_nMaxwell Falls was a great hike to do with the family.  It was easy enough for the kids to keep up and the dogs had little streams they could drink from and cool off in.  There are a few different entrances to this one but we decided to do Lower Maxwell Falls.  About half way through the hike we heard some people shouting and when I looked up I saw a huge rock formation with a few people standing at the top.  I told my boyfriend that I wanted to make my way up there.  There was a trail you could follow but Matt, the boyfriend decided we should do a short cut.  We climbed up the side of this mountain, which was at a pretty steep angle and eventually made it up and OMG what a view.  It was amazing and I would definitely recommend this hike to anyone.
