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.

Nice hike

My mom and I stopped and did a portion of this hike on our way to Castle Hot Springs, and it was a hot day, so we didn’t complete. Zero shade, make sure to bring lots of water!

Pipeline Trail

Amazing views.

Bridge is out :(

This is a great hike but the bridge across the water was washed away last summer and hasn't been reconstructed yet. It is still about a mile to the bridge and there are other trails all around it. Definitely worth the view from February to April when everything is blooming and the lake is full!

Stunning Desert Hike With Lake Views

One of the gems of Lake Pleasant Regional Park with a nice single track trail that even crosses OVER the lake! Also check out Yavapai Point!
