Lake Grapevine south shore

- Denton County, Texas

Length: 1.5-2 miles long (merges into Walnut Grove trail)

Configuration: linear trail system with side loops.

Description: These trails have been there for a long time and are recently improved. Beautiful wide well kept trails near lakeshore. Almost all is wooded. Parallels Marshall Creek for quite a distance. All of the trail that is on the south side of Marshall Creek is the old Walnut Grove trail.

Difficulty:

Width: Trail is wide and nicely trimmed.

Footing:

Horseshoes: Trails are very barefoot friendly.

Terrain: Some stretches in woods and some more open.

Challenges: Crossing Marshall Creek.

Near the guard shack there are heavily used motocross ATV trails. They are visible from the parking area, but they are not part of our trail system. The ATVs stay on their designated track.

Weather considerations: *The main gate will be closed and locked during non operational hours. Park hours: 8AM-8PM daily.

Water: Marshall Creek is big wide, and a great watering spot for horses.

Signage: Very well marked, maps available at the kiosk.

Fees: Pay $3 per horse to enter past guard gate into official parking area with facilities. Parking is available outside the gate for no charge, but there isn't much room.

The main gate will be closed and locked during non-operational hours. When the guard shack is not attended you can now pay at our new automated pay station with cash or credit card.

Parking/trail access: There is a designated parking lot with a step over at the north end of trail. Turn left just past guard gate, turn left at the next road to the top of hill with rest rooms on left, the grassy area just past rest rooms is designated equestrian parking. There is step over in the pipe fence at the start of trail.

Trailhead facilities: Bathrooms and a small treed & fenced area with picnic tables near guard gate. No horses allowed in this area. -- Rest rooms are also near equestrian parking.
