We will hike the entire 29 mile Perry Lake Trail in 2 days! Hiking, camping, fun and friends!
Join Compass Point home of Dirty Girl Adventures for the annual Dirty Girls Go All the Way hike! This event is for women only.
Every other year the Dirty Girls GO ALL THE WAY on the Perry Lake Trail. This 29 mile trail traces the edge of Perry Lake and includes great views, wildlife sightings and a variety of terrain.
Here’s the way it works… Friday evening we set up our basecamp. Camping that night is optional and you provide your own dinner and Saturday breakfast. The Dirty Bus picks us up at 8am and takes us to the trailhead. We hike about 8 miles then stop for lunch. Lunch is included and set up by our lovely Dirty Minion helpers who also bring our lawn chairs. We will refill our water, do some stretches and get back on the trail to hike 7 more miles ending at basecamp. Dinner around the campfire is included and set up by the Dirty Minions – it’s always delicious! After early breakfast on Sunday, we basically repeat Saturday on the other side of the trail. We will hike 14 miles before dark on Sunday and we’ll be able to say WE WENT ALL THE WAY on the PERRY LAKE TRAIL! We will provide a suggested gear list for this event. We will also monitor the weather and make adjustments as needed.
