Delta Heritage Trail Arkansas City Trailhead
Every visit to Delta Heritage Trail State Park is one to remember. Walking or riding along the trail, you may encounter a variety of wildlife and plants. When the rail-to-trail project is complete, it will be an astounding 84.5-miles long. The completed southern corridor is 23.8 miles from Watson to Arkansas City, including 14.4 miles of shared-use roadway on the Mississippi River Mainline Levee. Eventually, the trail will cross the White and Arkansas rivers.
The Arkansas City Trailhead includes a multi-use building designed in the style of historic rail depots that houses administrative functions, bathhouse facilities, and an open pavilion. Visitors can also enjoy picnic areas, a water fountain, a bicycle repair station, two over-sized tent pads for camping visitors, and a large group charcoal grill. Interpretative elements provide information on the DHT, background about the town’s history, and local recreational offerings.
