This was a cool hike. Wasn’t too much special about it although it did offer some really cool views. The return had some nice elevation gains at points, nothing great though. The bridge mentioned in the below review had been destroyed by the time I hiked it on 12/1, so it was just a hike across a dry river bed instead. If you’re here, be sure to hike Yavapai Point Trail, too. No shade, so take plenty of water if you plan on hiking both. $7 to enter, and I might would hike this again when I return for Yavapai Point, but just to see if the bridge had been repaired.

Wonderful trail and views. It intersects with the Yavapi Point trail and that is just beautiful. Saw plenty of wild Burro evidence but didn’t see any. We did come across a tarantula though! Many friendly hikers on the trail that was very interesting to talk to!

Fairly easy trail with kids, though with a couple potential ankle twister areas. Recent rains appear to have washed out the bridge and left extra rocks in some areas of the path. We saw several small toads, lizards, a variety of insects, and a snake sunning in a rock. Beautiful view of part of the lake from a rise. Clean restroom and eating pavilions at the trailhead.

Extremely easy off roading, unless you have a lowered sedan you’ll be 100% fine. Great views although the trails pretty long.

Really beautiful drive. Drove it in a 2WD Kia Sportage with no problem whatsoever. Not busy at all today (Friday).

I did this trail for the 4th time February 18th 2018. I like this trail as it has lots to offer. You start by walking a slight downhill then across a bridge that at a inlet on Lake Pleasant. Great photos from the walk down to the bridge and on it.

Then it’s uphill and their is a bench you can take a break at will great views. From there another mile you end up at a lookout point that has great views.

You can also go left before the lookout and come out at another picnic area and road, in about two miles, or return the way you came in. You get a workout walking from the bridge back to the trailhead.

This is one of those hikes to do more then once.

It was a nice trail, beautiful views, it's a great way to get to the lake as well. It's definitely not a moderate trail, I would say easy at best most any car can probably do this trail.

Very nice clean restrooms along with a great picnic area. Lake level was good too. Very disappointed we totally missed the blooming season...not even a dead bloom in sight. The hiking books all said there should be blooms into April.

Fun for just a day run and a place to stop for a bag lunch.

We are infrequent hikers and found this trail was a good match for our ability. We are 71 and 66 years and live in the Midwest so have little experience of high desert hiking. We did Pipeline from Cotonwood Picnic area to its terminus at another parking lot, ate lunch there and turned around and hiked back. We took the Yavapai Trail turnoff on the way back. It was a good section of that trail for us, mostly downhill and great views of the lake. Took us about 2 hrs, 45 min total. It’s very rocky, good shoes help, water is essential too. A terrific hiking experience for us!

Fun hike! Loved the views of the lake and getting to go right by the water. My pup enjoyed the break from the heat for a little water play time.

easy, nice views. Can be done in a 2 wheel drive. Busy road. alot of others out for the scenery also.

awesomely beautiful trail....easy....a little rocky but just amazing.

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

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.

It seemed as if the bridge was out of commission. It would’ve been nice if there were a sign at the trailhead indicating so.

Nice hike, we took the yavapai trail connector on the way back for change of scenery.

The trail itself was really nice but depending where you park, the bridge is out so you technically can’t complete it and turn around at the other parking lot.

Pretty trail with great lake views. Water level was low so able to cross the empty river bed to the other side where there is no longer a bridge and able to complete entire trail. Very hot!

Great views but is definitely easy, not moderate. I met a Chevy Malibu on this road.

This was a pretty good hike. Lots of ups and downs. Didn't see any snakes that was kind of disappointing. I think this hike would be much better in November because it was pretty hot today about 90°. I would totally do this hike again

This is a nice easy trail that allows you to enjoy a piece of the desert.
