great for loops
The Pipeline Trail starts about 0.4 miles in on the Mount Wrightson Super Trail. There is no signed trail marker at the Pipeline Trail junction with the Mount Wrightson Super Trail. The Super Trail will climb out of the creek it has been following and head in a northwest direction, when it switches to an easterly direction start looking for a trail that heads up the hill to your left. The Pipeline Trail climbs about 200 feet and then levels off. The Pipeline Trail is now in the next canyon north of the the one you just climbed out of, this is the creek that comes from Kent and Sylvester Springs. the Trail continues on for about a half mile and then comes to a junction with the Kent Spring Trail. The Kent Spring Trail comes in from the north and continues on down stream, the Pipeline Trail continues on up this steam. The Pipeline Trail follows the stream for about .6 miles before climbing up and Connecting with the Super Trail again.
I have never been to it but Roger's Rock is along this trail. At about 0.9 miles in, the hill to the east of the trail is where Roger's Rock is. At the time I was on this trail (October) the streams were flowing pretty good. I would expect them to dry up in late Spring early Summer until the monsoons. When hiking along the Pipeline Trail keep an eye out for the pipeline for which this trail is named.
This trail makes a good connecting trail for loop hikes involving Kent Spring Trail, Bog spring Trail and Four Springs Trail. Even though it isn't marked it was fairly easy to follow.
