 Events for Lake Pleasant 
<October 2015>

Lake Pleasant Regional Park offers over four miles of trails for pedestrain use only. Park trails range in length from .5 mile to 2 miles and moderate in difficulty.

The Pipeline Canyon Trail is the designated hiking trail at Lake Pleasant Regional Park. A floating bridge has been installed to connect the trail during high water levels.

The Visitor Center Trail is a half-mile, easy trail which connects the Roadrunner Campground to the Visitor Center. This trail has interconnecting loops and some interpretive signage which makes it an ideal hike for visitors to stroll about, while enjoying the desert. Access to the Visitor Center Trail is from the northwest corner of the Visitor Center parking lot.

The Roadrunner Trail is a scenic 1.5-mile trail which overlooks Lake Pleasant and links the Visitor Center with picnic areas A, B, and the 10-lane boat ramp. There are a number of smaller trails that lead to the lake from the Roadrunner Trail. Access to the Roadrunner Trail is from the northeast corner of the Visitor Center parking lot. 

Always remember to carry plenty of water and let someone know where you are going.
