Gorgeous trail following along a creek to a tiny oasis featuring a small waterfall. Please note that trail begins further down the road than marked on the map. The trailhead on the map indicates where you should park. There is a very rugged road some 4x4 vehicles may pass through, but it is recommended to begin your hike at trailhead on AllTrails map.

Grapevine road was not well marked we had to double back off of 69 to get to it. The last two tenths of a mile on the road are definitely a Jeep Trail, so just park and finish walking in. No clear starting point on the trail but most of the trail is it just a Jeep trail, so it was easy to follow. Wildfire went through the area some years ago but there's new undergrowth started. No water in the creek as expected.

This trail was destroyed by the Goodwin fire of 2017 and the subsequent flooding brought by the monsoons. You can still follow the track, when it is apparent, but it is rocky, channelized, and the area is blackened and inhospitable. It is so sad to see what has become of this heretofore beautiful and charming area.

definitley need a 4WD vehicle to get to the trail. there are some sketchy parts but overall makes for a fun drive.
the trail itself was pretty cool, gorgeous mountain views all around! no shade so bring hats and sunscreen.
we went off the path a little to the left and found a little creek that we walked along instead of the path. absolutely gorgeous. will definitley do again when it's a little cooler :p
