Arkansas River Section Named National Water Trail

staff - June 12, 2016 6:02 am

PRATT, Kan. (AP) – A portion of the Arkansas River in Kansas is now part of the National Park’s Service National Water Trail system.

The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism says the 192-mile stretch of the Arkansas River from Great Bend to the Oklahoma border southeast of Arkansas City was named a National Water Trail on June 4. The Kansas River is also a National Water Trail.

KDWPT fisheries biologist Jessica Mounts says the designation is the product of a partnership between Kansas and the National Park Service. She says the goal is to increase awareness of the Arkansas River and boost public access.
