PARKING: There’s a gravel parking lot at the main entrance. Park here and meet in the parking lot; tour will begin at the informational kiosk at the trail head.
TRAIL:  The natural trail is an unimproved footpath through the woods and in open pasture. It is not ADA accessible. The terrain is flat to slightly rolling. The trail passes Spring Creek and participants can wade in the creek if they wish. There are also benches along the trail to rest, although they are widely spaced. There are no water fountains on site, so it is also recommended that you bring your own water. Closed toed shoes or hiking boots and long pants and sleeves are recommended. If the weather remains warm, insect repellent is recommended.
RESTROOMS: There are no permanent restrooms or other facilities at the site or the trail head. There are port-o-johns.

LUNCH: Following the tour, you are most welcome to an optional self-pay lunch available at Jalisco Mexican Restaurant, 1290 Sparta Pike, Lebanon, TN 37090, which is an approximately five-minute drive from the trail head. Directions to Jalisco Restaurant – from the trail head, turn right onto Popular Hill Road. At the intersection of Popular Hill Road and Sparta Pike, turn right to head back toward Lebanon.
