The trailhead on Federal St. is a little tricky to find. Park at the entrance of the wide gravel driveway next to the guardrail. The trail begins just to the right, up a hill. When the trail splits, go to the left. And when you come out on Cheryl Dr. at the halfway point, walk a few paces to the right to access the other half of the loop. (There's a large gully separating the two halves of the trail.)
