This 3-mile trail hugs the south shore of Lake Grapevine, offering stunning views and surprising solitude. The first part of the trail is through woods; the second part is along the shoreline. The trail is open to horses and restricted to mountain bikers, but they sometimes can’t resist. Be prepared to see a few fat tire marks along with tracks of armadillos, opossums, and the occasional coyote. A series of interconnecting loops make it easy to shorten or lengthen this hike along the shore of Lake Grapevine. Despite being a few miles west of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, the park feels very remote. For simplicity, this trail hugs the shoreline of Lake Grapevine and the lake’s sandy beach can provide a good workout and somewhat muddy shoes, depending on recent rainfall.
