Pipeline Canyon Trail Reflections

Pipeline Canyon Trail Reflections

Lake Pleasant Regional Park offers visitors 10,000 acres of water for water skiing, jet skiing, sailing, kayaking, canoeing, and fishing. This 23,662 acre Maricopa County Park also has some interesting trails. We traversed the park’s longest trail, the 2 mile Pipeline Canyon Trail from the parking lot overlooking Scorpion Bay to the north end of the park at Castle Creek which is located within Yavapai County. The elevation change is a mere 202 feet, although one must tread carefully over loose rocks. The picturesque reflections around the floating bridge are well worth seeing. We were also gifted with views of 7 wild burros. The herd was staying in the shade on our trip in and we found them crossing the trail on our return. I explored part of the Yavapai Point Trail on our walk back to our car. Lake Pleasant Regional Park is another great park in the greater Phoenix area.
