Start at the parking lot and head south across the newly constructed bridge then head up the switchback to the first node where Carter cemetery resides. Or head east from the parking lot along the path, you will pass by campgrounds #1-8. Once you cross the river you will meander through the Ozarks a short ways uphill. You will pass Carter cemetery before you descend along the trail and cross the new footbridge to return.

I've just started hiking, and this is one of the first trails I started with, and it's a pretty good trail.
