If you ever find yourself at the trailhead of Sunday Gulch Trail at @custerstateparksd
and you read the sign that reads “strenuous” followed by notes of descending down the gulch on slick, wet rocks, maybe don’t be like us and take your small children with you on this trail anyway. 🤪
We made it about a half-mile down the gulch before deciding, for the best, that we should turn around. One too many slips on wet boulders and trips in shallow streams from Avery made us think the better of it. That being said, she loved it, and kept saying, “This is a summer of adventure!” the entire way.
If, however, you have able-bodied older kids or adults in your party, we highly recommend this trail! It was fascinating and fun and, as mentioned above, full of adventure. We definitely plan to be back. 🧡
