Get your 2014 hiking season jump started with an invigorating winter hike at Perry Lake. The trails at Perry are named clockwise from the Slough Creek Trailhead at the southern end. We will be hiking the Section 2 East Trail but we will actually be hiking west from the Old Military Trailhead. We will meet at the Old Military Hiking Trail Access on the west side of Ferguson Road just south of the bridge over Little Slough Creek.
• Driving map
This section is 3.5 miles long. We will hike out and back on the “Green” section, making this a 7.0 mile hike round trip.
• Trail map
Most of the terrain is mostly up and down of moderate difficulty with nice views of the lake and the occasional eagle sighting. There are a couple of surprising steep ascents and descents that make this hike a little tougher in places so trekking poles might be a good thing to bring.
This hike may be cancelled if trails are impassable due to weather conditions or temperatures are dangerously cold.
