There are no more that 10 parking spots at the trailhead, but more are available around the nature center on the Yellow Trail
, along with bathrooms. There is a grill and picnic area at the canoe/kayak launch point.
ARPR is a hard to find park, but it has some great ups and downs. There is an overlook pier to get a quick break or that awesome sunset/sunrise photo. This run incorporates the Perimeter Trail
along with the Green Trail
to make it a big loop of the park. There is a small boardwalk at the canoe launch point that will lead you to the Perimeter Trail
; if you find yourself running up the paved road, you didn't go far enough.
The park was started in 2003 at 20 acres with about a mile of trail and has grown to about 50 acres and four trails.
