The Pipeline Overlook Trail is a short trail that accesses an elevated shelf road once used to build the pipeline connecting the Otero Pump Station below. This trail offers uninhibited panoramic views of the Arkansas River Valley and the Collegiate Peaks to the west. The Otero Pump Station and pipeline were built as part of the original Homestake Project and were completed in 1967. The pump station lifts water from the Arkansas River against 575 feet of vertical head to deliver it to the South Platte River Basin over Trout Creek Pass.
