Description

The Rocky Branch Trail is a 1.25 mile enhanced natural surface trail that is a part of the 55 acre Rocky Branch Park. The park is a result of fantastic collaboration between the cities of Belmont and Cramerton as well as other partners including the Tarheel Trailblazers and the Carolina Thread Trail. Trail users can expect to enjoy a stroll under a beautifully shaded heritage trail canopy that extends from Belmont to Cramerton behind the Stuart Cramer High School. A number of single track mountain bike trails extend off of this beautiful trail segment which offer opportunities for cyclists of various experience levels to enjoy.
