Only giving 1 star because I can't do 0. There is no trail or trailhead. This needs to be removed.

Grapevine Hills Trail

This is a wonderful hike to do since it's only 2.2 miles round trip. It's flat for about a mile, with no cover. If it's a hot day, I would advise to bring plenty of water, sunscreen, and a hat. The last 1/4 of a mile is a little steeper, so if you have bad knees, you may not be able to complete it. However, kids can easily hike it, and even dogs. There's light traffic, so we had some space to enjoy some solitude. Best times to hike are probably earlier mornings when it's cool. Long gravel road to the trailhead, but no pot holes or large rocks.

Awesome spot to hike and swim! Highly recommend the southern trails for the elevation if you want a good hike. Check out the track I posted!

Fantastic! Took my dogs and they loved cooling off in the water for a spell or splashing around. Water shoes were a must today, but being prepared that made the hike even more adventurous. Really muddy in parts. Perfect length and several places to stop and hang out.

Memorial Day so it was packed but it was a beautiful hike. Unfortunately a little trashed but not as bad as I had expected from other reviews.
