Soft sand through 70% of it. Marking it hard to get footing. Poorly marked but trails are obvious and you never lose cell signal so not an issue.
On the plus side it’s very quiet. Trail is only for hikers and horses. Saw one person the whole time on a Sunday morning. The super soft sand made this a not return for me ALTHOUGH I might return to lay on of 3 beaches on the shores of the lake that are nice and sandy.

Plan on going back soon. Sandy surface with great views of the lake.

I headed west of Walnut Grove to the Trophy Club Equestrian Trails. It was beautiful. I can't wait to take this hike in the spring. Need to wear rain boots. I had to take off my shoes to cross the creek a couple of times. Two bridges are out. Probably could have crossed one section if I'd had my rain boots.

Nice walk. Light traffic, no bikes, good diversity and nice lake views.

Nice hike on a narrow horse trail. Well marked with some good panoramic views of Denton Creek.

This trail wanders through the brush and under some trees in the lands along Grapevine Lake. It is very sandy, making for a slower hike. Make sure your footwear supports your ankles. I enjoyed the lake views in the mid-section and the Big Bluestem grasses at the south end. The trail is 3/4 sunny and 1/4 shade. I encountered only one person on the Walnut Grove portion of the trail on a summer Friday's mid-morning. The only downside of the trail was the lack of signage. Often I came to an intersection marked by a blank or broken-off post. On my way back, I had to use my own footprints to make sure I was on the right trail. Intuition and common sense served me well enough, but I hope the signage is improved soon. Still a lovely way to spend the day.

This was a nice scenic and quiet trail along the Southlake portion of Lake Grapevine. We did the North Shore Trail the prior weekend and were constantly jumping off the trail to avoid getting slammed by bikers. This trail is for hikers and equestrians. We saw only two other people hiking and three riders. During the heat of summer, we try and find trails that are about 5 miles in length. Exposure was sunny and shady. Views of the lake and meadows. Our legs got a little scratched up due the wild nature of the trail. But we both really enjoyed the hike. I am new to this app, so started recording my track about .3 miles in from the trailhead. To get there from Dallas, you take Hwy 114 West to the White Chapel exit in Southlake. Take a right and follow all the way to the end and a little gravel parking lot.
