Great Trail. We hiked 2 loops and it was all shaded through out. Has couple of steep dips but doable. Didn’t mark 5 stars as there could be better trail markings.

Great trail. Recording shows slow time due to trail work on loop 3. Typically under 2 hours to complete loops 1,2,3 on foot.

Though Loop 3 was closed, it was a beautiful and fun trail. Lots of shade and you get to follow the water throughout your hike!

The trail is pretty shaded in most areas, and pretty well marked. The only complaint is that there is a lot of broken glass throughout the trail so if you bring your dog be careful.

Now open! The entire loop is 12 miles not 10! Was surprised when we finished and realized AllTrails has it wrong. The hike is a loop and is organized in 5 loops providing different distances. A couple weeks ago, majority of the trail was closed due to rain so we came back to do the rest! Check out Knob Hill MTB Trail Fb page for updated info. The first 3.5 and the last 2 miles were shaded very well and everything in between was in direct sunlight with bits of shade here and there. We started the hike at 6am and the sun was HOT at 10am. Not sure if we will do this entire hike again in the summer because it was so hot. We only saw mountain bikers the entire time-around 30. Mile 1-3.5: mostly flat, lush, shaded, and easy. Mile 4-6: sunny, flat-ish Mile 7-12: rocky, hilly, sunny, hot Overall I really love this trail and all of the beautiful views it offers. It is one of my favorites in North Texas.

Love the trail. But sad to see our favorite tree cut. You used to be able to walk out on to the tree for great views and pictures.

Great trail! Due to high water in Grapevine Lake, the trail is under water at roughly 2.3 miles from the trailhead. So we could do 4.6 miles only. The trail runs mostly through shade from trees and brush. Very relaxing hike. We started early at sunrise. I wish the trail was open all the way through. We will go back for sure.

A wonderful trail. I enjoy it each time in there. Unfortunately, as of July 2, you can only go around half way before the trail is completely covered by water. I’m sure it will dry soon. Beware of heavy mud in some areas and potential snakes near the trail as some parts were recent underwater. Also, bring bug spray. I’ve also seen some hogs on the trail so keep an eye out, especially for fresh tracks.

A very well maintained trail with a lot of beautiful views! It was lightly trafficked and majority of the time the trail was shaded. There was a big storm a week ago and the trail was still muddy. We were still able to hike but 2 miles in the trail was closed. Not too easy and not hard. Lots of markings which made for a great hike!

Very shady trail with varying elevations and interesting sights. Had a picnic by the river and chased frogs with my kiddo. Great exploring. Could use better markers.

I walked with my dog, the first two loops. The first leg of the loops was easy and flat, the return segments were much more interesting, more elevation and more trees. Loop 3 was closed due to flooding, this seems to be common for this trail. well traveled, a few bikes, limited parking.

Well-maintained trail. It took me a little under 5 hours to finish the trail today. Lots of mountain bikers and hikers on the trail but it did not feel crowded I really enjoyed the hike.
