Purple Heart Trail Details

This trail is most easily accessed from the back parking lot in Tom Wallace Recreation Area. This rugged and strenuous trail begins with a steep ascent to the loop which follows a u-shaped ridgeline to a steep valley crossing. Nice vistas exist along the western ridgeline and are especially nice in winter when leaves are absent.
