What is the Spring Fling? It’s an 8 mile hike along the Perry Lake Trail! The section that we will be hiking on March 28th, includes both fields and woodlands as we travel along the side of Lake Perry. Below are all the Dirty Peeps who hiked with us on our very first hike last March 2014! We had a great time! Although we won’t be hiking the same section of the Perry Lake Trail, I bet we will have another great time! This hike is open to all Dirty Peeps – Dudes, Kids (must be able to hike 8 miles) and, of course, Dirty Girls!
The trail is rough and uneven with mild inclines/declines along the way. We will expect to travel at a pace of about a 30 minute mile – give or take! We will pause for snacks, rest and scenic views along the way!
When: Saturday March 28th, 2015
Time: Check-in between 9am and 9:30am
Pre-Register by 3-20! $25 Regular Peeps, $20 Club Members (Includes bus ride, trail guide and support, snacks at the end) REGISTER HERE on the Dirty Shop under Events! We will hike regardless of cold or snow – cancellation may occur due to wet conditions or severe weather. Refunds are not available after the 20th as the bus and food will have been paid for by that date!
Where: The Slough Creek Campground Group Camp Area at Lake Perry!
Wear/Bring: Plan to wear long pants regardless of temperature. The Perry Lake Trail is a wilderness trail and there will be brushy sections. Bring water and snacks for along the trail If you don’t have a hydration pack, a string bag or small back pack would be handy for water and a few good snacks. Remember, we will be hiking 8 miles, that’s a lot of calories and energy expended. You need both protein and some sugar to keep your energy flowing – good protein bars, trail mix, an apple!
The Basic Plan: We will have feet on the trail by 10am and we should be relaxing around the campfire with some food and BYO beverages by 2ish. Dirty Girl Adventures will furnish a variety of snacks and water at the Campfire. Plan to bring snacks and water for the hike! You may choose to bring adult beverages to enjoy at the end of the hike. Please plan to bring a chair for around the campfire!
A variety of shirts will be available on the day of the event!
Last year it was pretty chilly – who knows what this year will bring!
We will be doing a different 8 mile section of the Perry Lake Trail than we did last March. This section will take us from the north end of the trail back to Slough Creek Campground for hanging out by the fire. We will make a stop at this awesome rock beach!
