Runner Notes

Connections to forest roads and technical singletrack are available making long loops possible in this area.

Description

Pipeline Trail is an easy to follow, narrow doubletrack dirt path with little grade change. The trail follows an old pipeline, curving around the Mission Ridge Area with sneak peek views of the Wenatchee Valley. This path is fairly flat, but the only connections that lead to it have a fairly substantial grade.

A nice loop option in the area is to combine this trail with the Squilchuck Trail #1200. Runners will have to use a small portion of Beehive Road/FR 9712 road to connect the two trails at the northern end of the loop, but this FS road is not busy and makes for an easy connection.

Flora & Fauna

Sagebrush environment with the potential for rattlesnakes in the summer (high enough elevation that your chance is fairly low, but still possible!).
