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.
