    North Shore/Grapevine ?

    I'm thinking of heading up to the N.S. trails in Grapevine. Are they loops, easy to get lost? Any recommendations on where best to park? I've watched a couple of videos on youtube & the long smooth singletrack looks fun.

    Thanks!

    The video I watched looked smooth in the sense that it didn't have a lot of roots/rocks. Another video had more of the tech sections w/riders doing drops & climbing up small ledges.

    I'm in Waco & ride Cameron Park regularly so I need to start venturing out.

    Thx for the link!

    NS has some great techy sections from MADD shelter west (rocks) and the one way loop from MADD east to Rockledge has a bit of everything, but not so much rocks as other end of park. All in all my favorite for great combo of flowy, rocky, techy, but not nearly the kind of climbs as Cameron for sure!!

    its dry now. I rode yesterday and it was perfect. nice and cool, tacky but not muddy. should be great the rest of the week. the east side is really smooth and fast for the most part with occasional roots and rocks. The west side is a little more technical, but nothing insane.

    Shoot me a PM. Ill probably ride Thursday around 430 or so if you want me to show you around.
