Grapevine – Madisonville
Grapevine Trail has had a time trial series that went throughout the summer of 2012. Their are no City Ordinances that keep riders from riding at night. So bring your lights and come ride.
The trail consists of two parts. The “A” side which is the most popular and best maintained portion. It is 3 miles. Then there is the “B” side which is less ridden and is 5 miles long. Both the A and B sides form together to make one large loop. So Grapevine consists of 8 miles of singletrack trail. It is divided by a gravel road that leads down to grapevine lake which is a popular area for fishing throughout the warmer months.
There is a current need to have some sustainable trail repair done such as some drainage issues associated with erosion, alongside building berms at some of the tight corners, and the repair of the wooden bridges.

This is a great trail that has something for everyone. Much of the trail runs beside the lake which is nice scenery. Unfortunately its a trail system that often gets overlooked and needs more rider traffic to keep it in good shape.
There are plans to have an XC race in the future as well as running the time trial series again this summer.
