Sunday, July 12, 2009 @ 1:00 PM -- Day hike around Grapevine lake

  • Jul 12, 2009 · 1:00 PM

Sunday, July 12 @ 1:00 PM -- Day hike around Grapevine lake! Forwarded from David V.: This Sunday, I'll be leading the first of several hikes to practice and test equipment for our trip to Colorado in August. We'll be taking a 5-8 mile hike through the scenic and rugged trails around Grapevine lake. (We'll decide on the particular trail depending on who shows up.) If you wish to train for our wedding hiking trip, test your equipment, or just get some exercise, you're welcome to join us. I will provide advice on equipment and proper technique. I will also bring weights to simulate a full pack. I think we'll have some extra backpacks too. Specific time 1:00 PM. We'll meet at the MADD shelter. Directions below: I-635 West from Dallas and Highway 121 North from Ft. Worth or DFW Airport
From 635, exit Bass Pro Road/Hwy 121, and proceed north on 121. Immediately stay to your right and take the FM 2499 overpass. Follow 2499 past Grapevine Mills Mall for approximately 6 miles until you get to Flower Mound Rd /FM 3040. Turn left on Flower Mound Road and go about 0.2 miles to McKamy Creek Rd. Turn left and follow McKamy Creek road for 1 mile to the intersection at Simmons Road. Turn left at Simmons, and follow it for 1.15 miles to a stop sign. After entering the park, take the first right turn. Continue on this road for about 1 mile to the Marina/Restaurant sign. Turn right, and proceed about 200 yards to the parking area next the picnic pavilion. 121 South from Lewisville
Exit Grapevine Mills Parkway (this is FM 2499) and go north following the above instructions If you have any questions, you can reach David directly via Meetup at

    It was pretty hot (100+) but most of the time we were in the shade. After the hike, we shared a pound of peel-and-eat shrimp and fish at the Little Pete's restaurant at the marina.

    We had a wonderful hike around the lake. It was definitely a good workout. I'm looking forward to more hiking in the coming weeks!
