Pipeline Canyon Trail is a 4 mile out and back trail located near Peoria, Arizona that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is best used from October until March.
The hike was ok. The view of the lake was limited with the low water level. the beached, floating bridge looked like an eye sore since the water level was so low. I dont recommend this hike unless the water leve is high. If the water level is low, take a break in the wash and look for the millions of spiders crawling in the rocks near the water.
Nice workout but lots of rocks on trail due to recent rains. View of lake was pretty (even with very low water levels).
Great Hike! Definitely low on the moderate scale, but beautiful hike.
i did the pipeline trail and loved it! its a short trail but has plenty of views and wild life you do have to buy a permit for 6 dollars not bad. but the fishing was great and not only hiking the trail i backpacked in so my trip was about 4.5 miles 9.0 miles round trip been waiting to do it again
Just completed a short 1 mile in (From the South trailhead to just after the bridge) for a moderate 2 mile round trip. The scenery is really nice with lots of lake views. The Bridge adds an element of interest, and you may be lucky to see some fish. Lots of evidence of wild burros which are common around the lake. Please note there is a $6 entrance fee to the lake area.
We started on the Pipeline Canyon Trail at the south trailhead which was just so-so. We then took the new spur on Yavapai Point Trail. Yavapai Point trail is a new trail. The Yavapai Point Trail is 3 miles total, 399 feet elevation change I believe, and was totally worth the hike up. The views over the lake were awesome! The grand opening celebration for Yavapai Point Trail is November 17th.
Kind of boring trail, just straight up a "V" valley, not really a canyon. Interesting crossing an inlet of the lake, some wild burrows around.
really easy out and back. parking lots on both ends of the trail make it a little anticlimactic. pretty lake views.
