Grapevine Lake

Grapevine is a community located northwest of DFW Airport. The best place to run in Grapevine is the 8,000 acre Grapevine Lake, home of numerous outdoor recreation activities. It’s southern end is about 5 miles from DFW. Running options include:

Paved Trail Option: The C Shane Wilbanks Trail, along the south side of Grapevile Lake, passing through Horseshoe Trails Park and on to Oak Grove Park. It connects with the Oak Grove Trail, which continues on for another 1.3 miles. The C Shane Wilbanks Trail crosses Dove Loop Road at the semi-famous Beer Bait Gro store which is no longer a store, but is home to the Grapevine Runners and Walkers (RAW).

Trail Run Option: There’s a 9+ mile path along the north shore that’s very popular with hikers and mountain bikers. Note — it’s not paved and is a little rough and rugged. TRAIL MAP
