The South Point Trail extends southward through a dense stand of oaks, beeches and maples to the tip of the upland peninsula. From South Point the visitor can view the beaver ponds and marsh to the south and west. The trees and shrubs in this area flash with the colors of wood warblers in mid-May. An overlook platform, located off a short spur, affords sweeping views. Boardwalks over low-lying areas ease the hike.

All trails in Tinker's Creek are seasonally wet with mosquitoes and deer flies being particularly pesky in summer. Insect repellent along with appropriate hiking shoes and apparel is advised.
