Rockledge Park is located on Fairway Drive in Grapevine, on the North side of Grapevine Lake. The park is a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers facility and it is popular with both mountain bikers and hikers due to the nine mile Northshore Trail. The trail winds along the banks of Grapevine Lake with excellent views at various points along the route. It is near the DFW airport, so don’t be surprised to see some large 767’s passing overhead, and there are often bass fisherman tucked in the coves along the path. However, the trail wanders in/out of a heavily wooded forest that hugs the water, so it is an enjoyable and somewhat wild experience only a short distance from a major metropolitan area.
