Backpacking on the Perry Lake Trail
April 23 @ 1:30 pm - April 24 @ 2:00 pmFree
Join us for a new adventure on the Perry Lake Trail. We will enjoy a new experience on the Perry Lake Trail by backpacking approximately 10-12 miles. We will load up our packs and explore the trail from a different vantage point than in the past by taking everything we need on our backs! Although this is a beginning backpacking adventure, the trail is rated as moderately difficult and strenuous due to several steep inclines and declines as well as rough uneven terrain. This will be a challenging adventure but a good experience for future backpacking adventures.
This adventure begins on Friday April 23rd at 1pm and should end Saturday April 24th mid to late afternoon.
We will talk about different packing and loading techniques for your pack, share some of the gear we love and hopefully demonstrate some HAMMOCK CAMPING – weather permitting. We are fair weather hammock campers!
When: Friday April 23rd – Saturday April 24th
Check in time: Friday April 23rd, 1:30pm
Estimated completion time: Saturday April 24th, mid-afternoon
What are you paying for? We’ve done all the planning, made reservations, made contact with USACE and have a plan if an emergency arises. We’ve also pre-hiked and chosen a campground. We’ll ensure that we have filtered drinking and cooking water, firewood and s’mores for dessert! In addition, we’ll provide you with a gear list, clothing suggestions and a pack weigh in prior to the event. Two experienced Dirty Girl Guides will be with you every step of the way!
