Camp Branch Glade
- Drinking Fountain
- Hitching Posts
- Picnic Tables
Camp Branch Glade is one of the only sites in the county with a wealth of Prickly Pear Cactus and numerous limestone features. The park contains a sinkhole, a large exposed limestone ridge, and numerous large boulders along a small intermittent stream that flows into Camp Branch Creek and then into the Blue River.
The primary feature of the park’s phase one development is a 1.5 mile trail system consisting of three different loops. It’s a nature trail for hiking and equestrian use that is surfaced with wood mulch and earthen materials. Each loop leads through a different natural area. The West Loop goes through the glade. The Center Loop is a relatively flat and moderate trail through the cedar canopy in the center part of the park where a limestone ridge is viewable. The East Trail Loop goes down to the creek and along a riparian corridor to a creek crossing with an intermittent water pool. It then passes through a limestone outcropping and leads back up to the center loop.
