From Interstate 40, exit 116, follow Highway 114 north 1.5 miles and turn right onto Hester-Pecan Tree Road at a sign for Shiloh Church and other areas. Follow this road for 1 mile and turn right onto Cavia Road, then follow this for 2.2 miles to Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church. Bear left onto a gravel road for 0.9 mile and park on the shoulder after a right curve.

Hike into the woods of Natchez Trace State Forest and follow the hollow to a junction with a large hollow headed north. Follow the large hollow north about 0.3 mile and hike left into a large side hollow heading west, then hike uphill to the northwest to the summit of Round Top. There are several large rocks on the top, and a partial view. Use a topo to help hiking this one.
