The North Loop is part of a tour of the Parker's Crossroads Battlefield, and explores sites relating to the onset of the battle fought on December 31, 1862. The trail has historical markers and occasional benches. It winds across an open field except for tree-lined path at the start and a single cool grove of trees which is very welcome on a hot day. As a battlefield nut, I really enjoyed the historical interpretation and would like to get back again because it appears from satellite views that the trail has been lengthened to a field south of Wildersville Road since I walked it.
