If you are in the area of Mont Vernon, jump on over to secluded Purgatory Falls, a short series of cascades traveling through a narrow gorge, accessible by horseback, mountain bike or by foot. No matter which means of transportation, expect to get a little muddy, as we always have when we visited. Several local residents informed us that for most of the months during the year the trail have giant muddy puddles that must either be traveled through or passed by. Every section is manageable if you take the time to scout the best way through or around these puddles.
The total drop of the falls is short, about 25 feet, but worth the visit as many other waterfalls do not offer the seclusion that this one does. Although we have not visited any of the additional cascades downstream, they are rumored to be a nice bonus to this hike.
