Hike the Pipeline Canyon Trail
Arizona › Pipeline Canyon Trail
Added by Jo Stein
The views at Lake Plesant are spectacular. And the native plants aren't too shabby either. (Note I love succulents.)
This is a great hike for outdoor adventurers young and old. We had three generations on our hike and everyone enjoyed the rolling hills and beautiful vistas.
Starting at a little below 2,000 feet this hike takes about two hours out and back over a two-mile stretch. There is a parking lot with bathrooms at either end.
For those with small members of your hiking party and two vehicles you could easily leave a car at either end of the trail. There are also lots of options to extend the hike and take add a more strenous extension.
Remember your sunscreen and water as it is HOT even in Feubary!
