The trailhead is a bit difficult to find - the south parking lot is down a fairly hidden single lane dirt road off Eastman Road. The trail itself is well marked, relatively level, although with more grade and obstacles than the North Loop
. The trail is heavily wooded and marshy in some spots, but there is wooden planking through the wettest parts.
There is a picnic bench at about the halfway point which is good for a water stop. The constant sounds of gunfire from the nearby firing range can be a bit annoying, though.
