Acker Park consists of approximately 80 acres of natural parkland near downtown Prescott with access from 421 S. Virginia St., Penn St./Eastwood, Autumn Breeze (in the Foothills subdivision) and S. Washington. The latter has limited parking and is best suited for walk-ins. The main 1-mile loop trail includes interpretive plant signs with nature quotes and children's art rotated in through out the year. There are 10 backless benches and 2 park benches that can be found along this trail to rest along the way or take in the scenic vista view that the trail offers. This is a very short trail in a city park. It is usually crowded but it is well suited to a quick after-work hike in the fall when the Sun is setting early.

Dress for the current and unexpected weather changes. Take plenty of water. Never go alone. Make an itinerary with your plan(s), route(s), destination(s) and expected return time.
