The portion of the hike reported on here is only from Rockledge Park Trailhead to the Murrell Park trailhead and back. This single-track natural surface trail originates in Rockledge Park to the Southeast and terminates in Rockypoint Park with additional trailheads in Murrell Park and Twin Coves Park. The trail meanders along the shoreline of Lake Grapevine and at times also goes through thick hardwood forest. Wildlife viewing opportunities include fox, deer, rabbit and abundant waterfowl and birding year round. Drinking water is available at all trailheads with public restroom facilities located only in Rockledge and Murrell Park access. Parking is abundant. Trail conditions become very difficult (steep and very rocky) at Twin Coves Park. Be wary of heavy mountain bike use as the trail is shared by both hikers and bikers.

Really liked this trail. Very beautiful views in some areas. Great for my dogs as there is lots of access to water throughout as well as some good shade cover. Ran into a few bikers who were polite. It's a bit of a drive from East Dallas but I will definitely be coming back.

This used to be a regular access point for Northshore on your MTB. Not anymore. Cost me $5 for a pain in the butt on my bike, when I could have accessed it for free elsewhere. And the park director was very impolite when we got stuck in the mess getting back to the vehicle and got back to the exit 5 minutes late. He probably would have locked us in the park, certainly seemed like that's what he was about to do.

Don't get me wrong, it looks great for hiking and walks on the beach, but the bike trail is no longer being maintained.

Access Northshore on your bike from Murrell park, not Rockledge!

Great trails. Some wooded and some along the shoreline so it makes a fun hike. There were a lot of bikes but everyone was friendly.

Love bringing my dog out to this trail. Very quiet, though many mountain bikers.

Awesome moderate trail. Mountain bikers every few minute. Most announce themselves. Bathroom doesn't have a working sink or water fountain. Views on the upper include the insides of some really fancy homes. Gate staff exceptionally welcoming and polite.

Beautiful view, which is a lot of what I was looking for. Not the right kind of trail for running, more for biking. Also, as a side note you have to pay $5 to park.
