The rolling singletrack Thunderbunny Trail is the quintessential trail at Strouds Run SP in Athens.

Trail Run Project Staff

Overview [Suggest Changes]

Thunderbunny is the quintessential trail in Athens, Ohio. From the start, the gentle singletrack follows rolling terrain for 2.7 miles until it ends near the Hollow Point Trail.
Features: Birding — Fall Colors — Spring — Views — Wildflowers — Wildlife [Add/Remove]

Need to Know [Suggest Changes]

There is a creek crossing near the end of the trail, before intersecting State Park Road, but is never high enough to warrant a detour. On particular rainy spring runs the water may come up to just below your knee's but in the summer there is usually just a trickle.

Description [Suggest Changes]

After starting from the trailhead runners gain the initial climb before going in and out of 3 hollows and then make a sweeping left-hand turn, past the popular "Aztec Rock." After Aztec Rock the trail runs near its high point before navigating five sharp switchbacks down the hill. During the winter months, you can see the Strouds Run State Park down the hill in this section. After the descent, you'll runners cross a small stream and then a larger stream crossing that will bring water up to the shins during the wet months.

From the end, the trail intersects State Park Road across from the Hollow Point Trail. Cross the road and head on if you want to make a longer run that shares the nice rolling characteristics of Thunderbunny.

History & Background [Suggest Changes]

This trail is the namesake for the Thunderbunny 50K, 25K, 12K, the first ultramarathon in Athens County, hosted by Southeastern Ohio Trail Runners.
