NOTE: There is no trailhead and users report of poor signage and lack of parking. Cell service here is also poor. Due to this trail being unofficial, it is poorly maintained and easily overgrown. This may cause hikers to get lost and have to go off trail. There are no facilities at this trail, so please do your part (pack it out). During the wet seasons, take note that there are no bridges for creek crossing and that this trail may flood.Show more

The Purcell Falls Trail is steep and narrow. The upper portion is "way trail" and not a formal trail and not maintained. Approaches to the stream may be steep, loose, and slick. Streambed is often solid rock and slick. Staying on trail is recommended.Show more
