Maxwell Falls Hike in Evergreen Colorado
Hiking in Colorado
The greatest thing about living in this beautiful state is the access to all the amazing hiking trails. I have been looking for good hiking trail near Denver where I could take couples on for sessions in the future. With all of the spare time not shooting work currently, it is giving me so many opportunities to get outside and location scout. This time of year is so hit or miss too, but we have been blessed with gorgeous weather in the foothills recently. So these 60 degree hikes have been beyond amazing. Everything is starting to get more green and is so beautiful and peaceful. I decided to do the Maxwell falls hike up in Evergreen, Colorado.
Maxwell Falls in Evergreen, Colorado
Maxwell Falls hiking trail is located in Evergreen and is roughly a 4.5 mile loop trail. You gain a little less than 900 feet in elevation. You have two trailhead options for this trail. While the lower trailhead of Maxwell Falls trail starts at about 7700 feet elevation, the upper trailhead sits at almost 8500. We started from the lower trailhead and made our way up to the falls. The trail then follows up around almost above the falls and gives some really beautiful viewpoints up there. This would be a beautiful location to bring a couple for an engagement session. It is a very forested trail which made it super pleasant on such a sunny day. It is also dog friendly which is a huge plus!

A Hiking Mini Couples Session
While hiking the Maxwell Falls trail, there were so many cute dogs. I kept passing one couple in particular and they had a puppy with them that was just adorable. We eventually ran into them for like the 4th time throughout the hike and so I decided to introduce myself. I asked if I could take a few photos of them with their pup. Not being able to really book sessions recently has me itching to take cute photos of adorable couples and their doggos! They were so kind and let me snap a few sweet captures. I think thats also the best thing about Colorado. So many friendly people. I have made countless friends out on trails.
You can go check out their cute 10 minute photo session here!
So we have kind of made it a thing after hiking now to go get ice cream after. Being in Evergreen, you can take Bear Creek Lane all the way back into Morrison. Morrison has THE BEST ice cream at Ozzis Ice Cream Shop. I so wish he had a website because I would absolutely link it up in here. However if you every find yourself in Morrison, Colorado. I suggest going to grab an Ice Cream Cone from Ozzi!
Ozzi’s is located at 101 Bear Creek Ln, Morrison, CO 80465.
