Hiked from Twin Cove to Rock Ledge.. great course with natural trails except when you get near the Murrell and Rock Ledge area... you have to follow an old asphalt road to a split to get to Rock Ledge. Only disappointment is with the Mountain Bikers... they seem to think the trail rules to yeild to hikers/runners do not apply to them. I was 3/4 of the way across one of the single lane bridges when a cyclist crossed coming the opposite direction... because there was not enough room for me to move, he hit me with the handle bars of his bike...plus the cyclists fail to announce when they are approaching and which side they are passing on.... If it weren't for the cyclist, this trail would receive a higher rating.... full of inclines, declines and flat trails.... weaving near the lake and around and through creeks and streambeds.

I live in the area, about five miles from the trail. I went out in early August to hike the trail during my day off and found it closed. It was closed due to some VERY heavy rain over the summer months. All lakes in the area were up due to the rain, so this wasn't a massive surprise. Its now December 07. I haven't been to recheck the trail, though I can only assume it is in better condition. Typically speaking, its a great trail, though there has been some development in the area with the Gaylord Texan resort right on the lake. I'm not sure if that hampers the hike at all.

The road access map is inaccurate due to locked gates prohibiting auto access.

This trail is great after you get by the ignored Army Corp park facilities. With the exception of the airport noise, you can't believe you are in the middle of DFW. There is great vegetation and beautiful views of the lake. However, the bikers are a problem for hikers as many of them speed on the flat areas and around corners.

This is a very moderate trail with a little bit more incline than other trails around Grapevine lake. There is little view of the main body of the lake which can make the hike a little muggy without the lake breeze. Not a bad way to spend the day though, but the trail is somewhat narrow, so you have to watch out for bikers. Also, this trail is in Flower Mound, TX--not Ft. Worth.

If you are hiking, please note what the mountian bikers say. This is single track and there are A LOT of bikes on it.

Grapevine Lake is a challenging single track with highly technical up and downhill areas combined with just enough flat trail. It is more than enough trail for the beginner and the avid biker. There are not any long downhill sections of the trail but you will find more than enough climbs and downhills!

The Grapevine Lake trail is a heavily traveled trail and you will find significant numbers of people using the trail. We experienced many mountain bikers and less hikers along this trail. This is a good trail for the novice hiker. There are nice views of the lake and other scenery. We rated this trail only one start because we consider this a city trail versus a trail that allows you to escape to the outdoors. It is located in a heavily populated area.
