“Sundown Trail is the longest continuous singletrack trail in Strouds Run State Park.”— Michael Owen
By running Sundown Trail and Hickory Trail, you are able to circumnavigate Dow Lake in less than 10 miles. Or you can choose to do an out-and-back on Sundown for a longer 12.2-mile run. Running Sundown Trail in each direction provides a little something different, as there are several decent climbs along the way.
Pay attention to the several trails that intersect Sundown, especially at Whitesel Junction, where four different trails converge. The posted trail signs make it easy to follow the Sundown Trail.
