“Link up to the peds-only trail in Swope Park and pass through a restored glade with oat grass, wildflowers, birds & more”— Planet Earth
There will be a fork in the trail close to Oakwood Drive. Take the left fork and cross Oakwood Drive. Once across, go left. The trail will switchback up the hill, past a stone shelter then to a crossroad near a red park building. To the left, you'll see a wood barrier. This is the Rocky Point Glade trailhead. The pedestrians-only sign has been vandalized and last we saw was on the ground. Go through this barrier.
The trail will wind above the Wudchuk Run trail for a bit then the terrain will turn to tall grass. Welcome to the glade. Follow the trail for about 3/4 mile to a seating area near the park office grounds. Reverse course to return.
You'll notice along the way a few opportunities to join the Wudchuk Run trail. The terrain along Wudchuk Run differs from the glade, with rock formations, more elevation changes and challenges to footing by the rocky path. Take the Wudchuk Run trail back for some variety and added difficulty.
