Pipeline Canyon Trail



The Pipeline Canyon Trail is a wonderful contrast of desert and water located northwest of Phoenix.  The moderate four mile round trip trail is accessible from October through March, the best time for hiking in a desert environment. Hikers are treated to open vistas, a great variety of desert plants and views of Lake Pleasant along the way. Look for giant saguaros, cholla, ocotillo, palo verde along with spring wildflowers. Along the way, the trail contours near a wash and eventually to a bridge across Pipeline Cove at the lake. Total elevation change is about 650 feet, so it's good for a range of abilities. 
Pipeline Canyon Trail is a great hike for fall through spring and entry is just $6 per car. Come prepared with plenty of water and snacks and be mindful of weather conditions. Enjoy the trail!
