CULP BRANCH. Culp Branch rises eight miles northeast of Denton in north central Denton County (at 33°21' N, 97°06' W) and runs southeast for seven miles to its mouth on the Elm Fork of the Trinity River, five miles northeast of Denton (at 33°17' N, 97°02' W). It traverses low-rolling to flat terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support hardwood trees, scrub brush, cacti, and various grasses. The area has served as crop and range land.
