This is a great short hike with beautiful lake views and an absurd concentration of gnats. Don’t hike here with your mouth open. We hiked with our dog and at the end, went down to the lakeshore to have a snack break and let the dog cool off in the water. We thought the Hohokam prehistoric site would make a better endpoint, though; that was a much better viewpoint than the actual recorded trail end on here.

A nice short trail that we did after hiking the Yavapai Trail at Lake Pleasant. This trail was easy, right along the lake. We didn’t go all of the way out to the end because of loose rock. Does run along the RV camp area.

Apple maps wanted me to turn onto a road that was completely closed. Had to go into the main park instead. I’ve never been to Lake Pleasant - this was my first time. I was disappointed I drove an hour for this particular hike. It was beautiful and up against the water, however, it’s more of a hike you should pick if you’re already there and camping.

great for kids and dogs. right against water

Had fun playing in the water with the dog! Walked on the trail one way and the shoreline back.

Great easy trial along the edge of Lake Pleasant. I brought a six year old and dog with out any issues. You can follow a path to the shore and play in water if you want. Took about an hour and a half.

Short, easy trail along the shore of Lake Pleasant. We had a cool and very sunny day. This time of year parking is so easy! Restrooms are good and available. Recommend this trail for everyone.

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!
