great trail, done this a couple times. great views. You need high clearance in some areas. Nice because the trail changes each time after heavy rains.

Saw six or eight burros on the North end of he trail.
Restroom at the trailhead was a lifesaver.

One of my faves.

Took our scout troop and this trail was perfect! Nice views of the lake the whole time and easy access to the water in many spots. Cool Hohokam ruins too!

Great short hike. Amazing views. Agree that the trail gets more narrow the higher you get. Just be careful! Sad I didn’t see any of the wild burros too!

Easy hike, even for my 7year-old!! We saw wild donkeys and the views of the lake are beautiful!

Best one yet! Beautiful scenic views of the lake and the desert.

Starts off at cottonwood Ln. You must start at pipeline trail until you meet with Yavapai trail.
The trail is very rocky, and narrow so be prepared with some good shoes and be ready to make yourself super skinny when letting others pass and try not to fall on the cholla. There’s rarely any shade so bring lots of water!
The lake view is amazing once you get to the viewpoint. Overall we really enjoyed this hike!
People were complaining because it’s so narrow BUT do your research before heading out or just head out and make the best of it! :) no one likes whiney hikers ;)

Wow is this a beautiful and unique hike. It’s a steep but short assent to the top of the peak and prepared to use all fours (not caring bottles in hand).
Be prepared to become a mountain goat!

The trailhead was at the Cottonwood picnic area. We decided to start at the Pipeline trailhead and took the “shortcut” to Yavapai Trail. For January, the Lake Pleasant water levels were obviously lower as seen on the shoreline rocks. The panoramic views were vast all around. From the summit we saw the narrow bridge on the Pipeline trail towards the marina. There were lots of Cholla along the narrow switchbacks, so be careful not to catch one of them on your pants. If the Cholla happens to hitch a ride, be prepared to remove it with nose pliers or a comb. This was a quick and easy hike.
Park fee at entrance. Nice restrooms at trailhead.

Great little warm up trail with some very nice views . Relaxing

Beautiful view of the lake from the top!

Fun for the whole family. Easy going trails with up and down terrain and beautiful scenery. Easily accessible adjacent trails allow you to create your own adventure.

Easy to Moderate hike with beautiful views! It does cost $6 to enter Lake Pleasant, based on the honor system. We encountered just a handful of other hikers, so it was very quaint. I highly recommend this hike for the diverse Arizona scenery. It took us 1 hour & 45 minutes to do the Pipeline Trail, which is about 4 miles.

Awesome drive. Didn't make it all the way High centered my 2016 ram 1500 on the boulder by Orobelle mine. I would do it again any day.(In a slightly higher vehicle of course

We enjoyed the scenery as well as the trail.

This was a nice hike, wide easy trail to start, it narrows about half way. Ends with a wonderful view of the lake

Amazing! Great views and nice workout! Do this hike.
