A loop trail at Perry Lake (A Corps of Engineers reservoir) in Northeast Kansas. Celebrating 40 years as part of the National Recreational Trails system. The trail offers a range of terrain and difficulty from easy, gentle slopes in the south to rugged, varying elevation changes in the north. Many folks refer to the Perry Lake area as the "Little Ozarks". A tribute to the beautiful, tree-covered hills that characterize the Delaware River watershed. Wildlife is abundant in the area and lucky hikers are likely to see deer, turkey, waterfowl, reptiles, small mammals and even the occasional Bald Eagle! There are many places along the trail that offer scenic views of the lake, with some portions very close to water's edge. With the exception of a short along-the-road portion of trail that completes the loop, Perry Lake Trail is located entirely on Corps of Engineers land. Perry Lake Trail is designated for hiking only. The Corps website also provides information about the many other hiking, biking, equestrian and ATV trails available at Perry Lake.
