The Great American Road Trip: Custer State Park – Sunday Gulch Trail
We hopped in the car and headed off to hike the Sunday Gulch Trail today in Custer State Park. Although a short 3.8 miles, this trail covers a lot of altitude and took 2 hours. The trail starts at the visitor center at Sylvan Lake and quickly turns into steep switchbacks, winding up and down hills, across streams and up a rocky waterfall. The trail is peppered with shiny flecks of mica and looks brilliant in the afternoon sun. All in all, this trail was a great leg and butt workout and such an endorphin high.
You will need to pay an entrance fee to get here and note that the access road is closed in winters.
