It’s time! We’ve been hiking and moving our bodies for months now and it’s time to go all the way! All the way around the Perry Lake Trail that is! This is a really cool trail and the company can’t be beat! This is NOT a race! Our anticipated pace for the duration is a 30 minute mile. This is an event to celebrate our love of the outdoors while simultaneously celebrating our ability to endure and sustain physical activity for a long time! We will see many interesting sights and enjoy the time with our Dirty compadres! We will spend Columbus Day weekend, October 11th and 12th hiking the distance! This event is open to every Dirty Peep! Dirty Girls, Dirty Dudes and Dirty Teens.
We will begin early Saturday morning by setting up camp at Slough Creek Campground then we will load up the party bus and head for the Old Military Trail Head! We will hike the west side of the trail on Saturday – from The Old Military Trail Head to Slough Creek Campground. Dirty Minions will monitor our camp while we hike, keeping the fire burning at base camp. On the trail, we will have a delicious boxed lunch at the 8 mile mark. We will end at base camp with showers, a fire and a hot dinner! After a great night at base camp, we will wake up, get a good breakfast then hop the party bus back to the Old Military Trail Head to hike the east side of the Perry Lake Trail. We will have another great lunch on the trail. When we get back to base camp, we will break camp and celebrate our accomplishment (then go home and shower!)
This trail includes rocky, hilly steep inclines and declines. There will be brush, poison ivy and bugs. The distance is not the only challenge – a good portion of the trail is decidedly technical in nature. Signing up for this event indicates your understanding of the challenges in terrain, distance and weather. The event will occur regardless of temperature – cancellation will occur only with severe weather.
Dirty Girl Adventures will provide trail support along the way. Guidance, encouragement, lunch, water stops to refill your packs and the assurance that no Dirty Girls will be left behind!
Hikers will need the following gear: quality shoes, layered clothing for both days, hydration pack with AT LEAST 2.o liters of water to start, bug spray, snacks, one fully charged cell phone for each day, camp chair, overnight camping supplies (sleeping quarters, bed roll, etc.), shower supplies and a camera!
