The trail was very overgrown. It wasn't close to the river, and the trail wasn't clearly marked for the first half. We didn't see any wild horses. That being said, the trees were very pretty.

It wasn't very close to the river at all, and you couldn't see it for most of the trail.

Too over grown, there is a bee hive somewhere close because there was bees everywhere. Very flat if you like that

Not really a good trail and close to the camp site. There's a great creek to swim in but, that's it.

Really like this hike. My kids and I hike this trail every year. There are a few drops that need navigated, no ropes needed.
My kids love the adventure of the hike.
We wade, fish and watch the rafts run the rapids, when we get to the river. I have taken kids as young as 7yrs old. The younger ones just need a boost up the four to five foot drops.

Very easy trail. Not a lot of foot traffic.

Reviews mentioned a lot of trash so we brought bags, were pleasantly surprised with the lack- we only managed to find a bit. Easy stroll, not completely accessible, but the trail itself is do-able if you have big wheels and strong muscles.

I wasn't aware of the $6 park entry fee, however this hike was well worth the cost. I took my dog Grommet for an afternoon hike on a Sunday and we were practically the only ones out there. We took the Pipeline Canyon trail all the way down to the water. Needless to say, this trail is incredibly beautiful. Not only are there saguaro cactus growing all over the hillsides, but I was lucky enough to run into a falconer who was training his Harris Hawk. It completely made my day watching the hawk fly around the desert landscape, and ever so gracefully land on his master's perch.

Grommet and I enjoyed a game of swimming fetch at the end of Pipeline Canyon. The trail actually ended at that point because the bridge was out due to high water. On our way back to the car, we ended up taking Pipeline Canyon and turned right onto to Yavapai Point trail to make this a fantastic loop with mind-blowing beautiful views.

Epic and easy hike. 10 out of 10 would recommend.
