Closed December 15-April 15th for elk calving. In the early summer, the river floods and the crossing may be tricky. Hope you have good balance to cross on the downed tree!

Runner Notes

You'll probably see a bear on this trail. There are quite a few at the top of the pipeline section. This is a busy hunting area in the fall. Be sure to wear blaze orange during season.

Keep your head up. The bikers love this trail, and you'll need to step aside and let them have their fun. Runners may have the right of way, but it is so easy to step to the side. Let's be friends.

Description

Pipeline begins at the parking lot at the top of 4th of July Road. It is basically a straight shot south from the parking lot, on a mostly straight, undulating trail. This first 2.5 miles are in an open valley where many birds and deer can be seen.

The fun really begins about 2.5 miles up the trail when you are at the true 'pipeline' section. Here the singletrack becomes a bit more challenging (but still advanced-beginner level). It runs along a little creek and in a narrow cut so you are surrounded by trees and greenery. In the fall, this run is spectacular due to the wealth of aspen trees lining the trail.

Flora & Fauna

Aspen trees! Deer, bear, and birds.

The reason for the trail's name. A no longer in use pipeline runs to the right of the trail.
