This portion of the hike is from Murrell Park to Twin Coves Park. There are several trailheads along the North Shore Trail, including at: Rockledge Park, Murrell Park, MADD Shelter, and Twin Coves Park. This is a single-track trail. It meanders along the shoreline of Lake Grapevine and sometimes goes through thick hardwood forest. Wildlife viewing opportunities include fox, deer, rabbit and abundant waterfowl and birding year round.

All 20 miles of the North Shore trails are gorgeous. Best maintained trails within DFW, and it’s not even close. Great variety of train, fun elevation shifts and water crosses. Enjoyed the rocky terrain of the northwest loop. Will keep coming back.

Bikes bikes bikes. Most were nice and said hello. One said “watch out” he was the exception among the ones that passes us. We hiked with a 3 and 6 year old. Probably won’t go there again. Too much of a hassle getting off trail every 90 sec for a bike.
