Day Hike IconNov 4 (Sat) Day Hike on Rocky Point Trail, Flower Mound

Let's hike 3 to 4 miles in and out (6 to 8 miles round-trip) on this unpaved trail to the north shore of Lake Grapevine. Most of the trail is on land owned by the Army Corps of Engineers. The trail isn't well-marked, so finding our way may be part of the fun. Trailhead parking is extremely limited, so let's meet at McDonalds, 765 W. Main in Lewisville (free-standing building in front of Sam's Club), ready to LEAVE McDonalds at 9:30 AM. We'll form carpools there for the 10-mile trip to the trailhead. Wear sturdy shoes or boots and yellow or orange, to be visible to hunters. Carry water and a snack; we may not finish the hike until 1 or 2 PM. If the hike's cancelled due to foul weather, that info will be posted to this site by 7:30 AM on Nov. 4. No pets, please.   Trip rated: Easy. Leader: Mark Stein Send Email 214-789-4596
