C. Shane Wilbanks Trail Description

The C. Shane Wilbanks Trail follows more than three miles of shoreline along Grapevine Lake with pleasant views of the water and surrounding woodlands. The trail ends at Oak Grove Park, the largest park on the lake, which offers restrooms, covered picnic tables, boat ramps and athletic fields. For a more rugged experience, you'll pass through Horseshoe Trails Park, which offers a mountain biking trail.

Parking and Trail Access

Plentiful parking can be found in Oak Grove Park (2520 Oak Grove Loop South) on the trail's eastern end. Parking lots can also be found off Snakey Lane, which flanks the trail's western branch.

C. Shane Wilbanks Trail Reviews

Dog Friendly

Enjoyed walking this trail this morning except the bikers come flying by you without any warning. The trees over hang the path in some areas which was nice but limits your visibility to see the lake.

great trail

Love it. Very easy to ride with a few small hill. Great place to spend a few hours. Fantastic views from any points.

great trail named after a great city leader of Grapevine

fantastic, you can jump to different trails and picnic area. shaded and very enjoyable.

Nice trail that's close to home...

The trail is minimally manicured until you get to the Oak Grove Park portion, where the trail is heavily manicured. Being close to home gives my wife and I the opportunity to ride to the park's picnic pavilion and watch the sunrise most every weekend. Pedestrian traffic is light during the week and moderate on the weekends. Overall, a nice ride for those not wanting to do the MTB trails.

Accordion

nice trail, as a result it's pretty popular

Hybrid bikes, extremely new to biking.

This trail is great. It's got enough incline to make you work a bit, but not so bad that a novice would have to get off and walk. Plenty of trees to keep you from burning up in the sun and the view is awesome around the lake. There were quite a bit of curves to contend with (which could be a bit hairy coming downhill). Be warned, you will be sharing the trail with pedestrians and people walking their dogs.

Overall, a positive experience. Would definitely ride again.
