Located in the Appalachian foothills near the banks of the Ohio River, 1,095-acre Shawnee State Park is nestled in the 63,000-acre Shawnee State Forest.

Once the hunting grounds of the Shawnee Indians, the region is one of the most picturesque in the state, featuring erosion-carved valleys and wooded hills. The rugged beauty of the area has earned it the nickname "The Little Smokies."

Run for a Cause

A portion of each registration from each racer and an overall donation from Mountain Trail Series will be given to the CURE JM Foundation. Juvenile Myositis (JM), including Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDM) and Juvenile Polymyositis (JPM), are a group of rare and life-threatening autoimmune diseases, in which the body’s immune system attacks its own cells and tissues. Weak muscles and skin rash are the primary symptoms of JDM, while muscle weakness without a rash is the primary symptom of JPM.

​We feel this foundation is doing critical work to help children who are dealing with this devastating illness. You can help support the cause by donating to the CURE JM Foundation. All donations go directly to the foundation.

Thank you for your support.
