Despite all our best efforts to keep paint blazes in place and maintain the trail, nothing provides the peace of mind like a detailed map. And nothing compares to the capabilities of modern GPS receivers to answer that age-old question: Where am I?

We have collected, examined, evaluated and updated GPS survey data on Perry Lake Trail for nearly 20 years. Today's basic outdoor recreation GPS receiver offers capabilities superior to low-end survey grade equipment we used two decades ago for our first trail maps.

The files below are offered with the hope that they'll enhance your experience on the trail. Enjoy!

Open Source file for GPS devices (.gpx):              PerryTrailALL.mps

This file was generated by appending multiple track log files. The file includes MILE MARKERS along the trail. NOTE: Elevation data is missing from most of the track log file. Elevation at Perry ranges between 880' and 1080'. To download, right click on the Download File link and select the Save Target As option . For some reason, the resulting Save As window tries to rename this as an .XML file. BE SURE TO RENAME this file with the proper .GPX suffix

Google Earth (.kml) Layer file with added details: PerryTrail.kml

This file also includes location of MILE MARKERS. To download, right click on the Download File link and select the Save Target As option . For some reason, the resulting Save As window tries to rename this as an .XML file. BE SURE TO RENAME this file with the proper .KML suffix. With Google Earth loaded on your machine, simply double-click on this .KML file to launch Google Earth and display trail data. Trail appears in Yellow. To display mile marker or access point locations, open the desired item using the arrows and tree view that appears to the left of the map window.
