This trail gets its name from its location—the north shore of Lake Grapevine—and is a favorite among Dallas/Fort Worth hikers, runners, and cyclists. The trail has lots of rocks and roots and lots of ups and downs, but nothing too steep. Sunny weekends can bring crowded trails as nature lovers come to take in the lake views from the trail’s cliffs. One of the most popular—if not the most popular—hikes in the region, this trail can sometimes feel loved to death. Conditions are crowded on many weekends. Mountain bikers flock here. You’ll have to share the trail with them for most of the stretches, so be listening for wheels crunching behind you. The hike starts off at Rockledge Park and winds over cliffside trails overlooking Lake Grapevine. Avoid this trail after a heavy rain, when it’s muddy and sometimes impassable as the lake overtakes its banks.
