This trail interprets the Battle of Parker's Crossroads, December 31, 1862. Another loop trail north of Interstate 40 also describes part of the battle. Both trails are part of a driving tour of the Parker's Crossroads Battlefield Association. The South Loop Trail starts at a large parking lot and kiosk and proceeds along a level paved track through mostly fields with a shady grove and the edge of a forest. One trail branch leads east through forest and over uneven ground about 1000 feet to a Confederate artillery position. A branch off this artillery trail leads south through the forest beside a shallow ravine.This is a very enjoyable walk and a chance to explore a really interesting battle with a surprise ending.
