      Horseshoe is a really old trail system on the south shore of Lake Grapevine. It was around a long time before DORBA took over maintenance and development. It's a fun intermediate trail with enough elevation change over rocks and roots to keep its 5 miles or so interesting. While a lot of the trail is ride-able by any skill set, there are a couple of brief steep, rocky challenges. Horseshoe is a great post workday quick ride.
