Grapevine Hills road is an improved dirt road 3.3 miles west of Panther Junction. Five primitive roadside campsites are located along the Grapevine Hills road. GH-1 is 0.3 miles down the dirt road. GH-2 and GH-3 are adjoining sites located 3.8 miles down the dirt road. GH-4 and GH-5 are are located at the end of the dirt road.
Grapevine Hills Road is usually accessible to all vehicles except after rain when it may require high clearance or 4-wheel drive past GH-1. Beyond the Grapevine Hills trailhead (mile 6.4), the road becomes very rough and rocky, and requires at minimum a sturdy high clearance vehicle.
There is no shade at any of these campsites. There is minimal ground cover surrounding GH-1, GH-2, and GH-3. Moderate ground cover and low shrubs border GH-4 and GH-5 due to increased vegetation near Grapevine Spring.
The Chisos Mountains can be seen from the entire length of the road. Government Spring is located near GH-1. There are good views of the Grapevine Hills and distant Rosillos Mountains from GH-2,3,4,5. Good sunset views of the Deadhorse and Sierra del Carmen from GH-4 and GH-5.
There is no surface water at Grapevine Springs. The Grapevine Hills Trail is located along the east side of the road. This beautiful trail leads through a boulder strewn valley to a balanced rock formation.
