    Grapevine Hills Trail

    This 2.2 mile round trip trail is rated as easy walking. However, if you choose to follow the extra 100 yards along the ridge it becomes much more difficult. The trail leads you into the heart of the Grapevine Hills. You will pass huge granite boulders surrounded by high rocky walls.

    At the end of the Grapevine Trail you will find a trail that climbs for one quarter mile, ending at a natural window created by boulders, called Balanced Rock. This section of the trail was fairly steep and was not a developed path, so that it involved some medium difficulty maneuvers and rock scrambling.
