Grapevine Hills Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Grapevine Hills Trail is a relatively easy 1-mile walk, most of it on relatively flat terrain. You will be walking in and out of a sandy wash for the first 0.75 mile, with a gradual rise in elevation. For the last 0.25 mile, the trail becomes more strenuous as it climbs up a short but steep rocky slope before ending at a large balanced rock perched overhead between two rock pinnacles."

This is a fun shot hike with amazing rock scenery along the way, The route is easy to follow most of the way, however the last 300 yards or so are not marked. Like most hikes in this area this is best completed early in the morning or late in the day and take enough water and put on the sunscreen. The balance rack at the end of the hike is much smaller than some literature suggests, but work seeing. You may run into some Javelinas along the way. Snakes are also common.

I've done this shorty quite a few times. The magma intrusion canyon walls are great picture subjects in mid day with blue skys. The end of the trail offers a ballanced rock formation that photographs well from both sides, although I prefer the far side with a rising sun hitting it. Beyond the ballanced rock is some great boulder scrambelling which offers some wonderful panoramic vistas. This is a good hike for any time of day, early to late.

Nice easy evening stroll to interesting rock formations and good rock scrambing valley sides. Good hike for kids. A bit of a drive to get there, but if your at Big Bend you can say that about everything! Would do this hike again. The trail follows the sandy valley floor until it encounters a rock formation and the valley drops away - great view.
