Ararat River Greenway Trail

Posted on: July 5th, 2013 by 89and52 No Comments

The Ararat River Greenway is a paved 2.2-mile paved Greenway Trail from Riverside Park to Tharrington Park )beside Tharrington Elementary School). This section of the Ararat River has been restored and is a great area for wildlife viewing, kayaking, canoeing, and trout fishing. The entire length of the Greenway Trail is stocked with trout. There are multiple canoe/kayak/tube launch stations along the trail as well as multiple areas for sitting by the river. A restroom is available halfway down the trail, off on a side trail to the environmental park. Restrooms are also available at Riverside Park.
When exploring, look for TRACK (Trails Ridges and Active Caring Kids) Trail Adventure guides along the trail or online at www.kidsinparks.com. Created by the Blue Ridge Foundation, the guides offer educational opportunities for children.
