Arkansas River Trail (Pueblo) Description

The Arkansas River Trail begins in the heart of Pueblo and heads westward along the river to Lake Pueblo State Park, which is brimming with recreational amenities, including campgrounds, fishing ponds, swimming beaches, and picnic areas.

To one side, the paved pathway offers up-close views of the river, while, on the other, it offers scenic tree-filled hillsides. Just beyond the trees, the trail passes residential neighborhoods, shopping and dining areas, and the Dutch Clark Stadium. A highlight of the route is the Nature and Raptor Center of Pueblo, located in beautiful Rock Canyon. The center offers educational programing about the birds of prey which it rehabilitates, as well as unpaved nature walks through a variety of habitats.

The trail is part of the Pueblo River Trails System, which spans more than two dozen miles throughout the city.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the Nature and Raptor Center of Pueblo (5200 Nature Center Rd.) and at Lake Pueblo State Park.

The Arkansas River section goes 3 miles beyond what TrailLink shows, and the Fort Creek section adds another 5 miles, all excellent concrete surface. See https://www.pueblo.us/314/Pueblo-River-Trail-System for a nice PDF map.
