Description

The Perry Lake Trail has multiple trailheads along its 30 mile length. The main trailhead is in the Slough Creek campground. The trail follows the eastern shore of Perry Lake on the west side of the loop, and follows along the Slough Creek arm of the lake on the east side of the loop. Be aware that there is a portion of the trail that will be on a road. This four mile segment is located in the northeast corner of the loop, and the trail will join 82nd Street until it joins with Kiowa Road. Take a left on to Kiowa Road, and follow this road until the trail reappears to your left, not far from the intersection with 92. Aside from this paved portion, the route is a singletrack dirt trail with small rocks and roots.

The trail is mostly flat and mostly shaded by trees.
