Arkansas Riverwalk Trail

Near Royal Gorge     |     7.5 Miles    |     Easy     |     Loop Trail   

The Riverwalk Trail, a mild 7.5-mile pathway, follows the river through the historic and most scenic parts of Cañon City. The trail is mostly flat, and if you’re out with your family for a casual jog, bike ride, or a walk, there are fitness stations along the way so that you can make the most out of your recreation.

The crushed gravel path is open for biking, hiking, strolling, and horseback riding. Leashed dogs are welcome. An early evening stroll along the riverwalk provides a great opportunity for bird watching and wildlife spotting.

The Cañon City Whitewater Kayak and Recreation Park is an exciting new addition to the Riverwalk area, benefiting boaters, fishermen, hikers, walkers, bikers, and runners.

Popular access points with parking areas are Centennial Park, Sell’s Lake (off 9th Street), MacKenize Avenue Trailhead, and Tunnel Drive (the furthest point west on the trail).
