What crazy weather we’re having! Happily, it’s perfect for hiking! We have two different events coming up SOON! Our annual Eagle Hike is scheduled for February 10th and February 11th. We will “basecamp” out of Bobcat’s Bar and Grill near Ozawkie and take the bus to our hike location. The total distance will be 3-4ish miles, we will get you into location where we often see American Bald Eagles – no guarantees but the chances are high! Each of these hikes has a check in time of 12:30.
We have made some awesome memories on previous Eagle Hikes and we know that this year will bring more adventure! Sign up now in the Dirty Shop!
We are also hosting a special event on March 3rd to Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Perry Lake Trail. SUPER EXCITED!! Sign up now for our Celebration Hikes!
