“enjoyable walk”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

Had an enjoyable walk in this area. They had enough signage and information available to make it interesting and easy to find from the Pinkerton Park parking lot. Beautiful setting with all those big, old trees and made the walk much more enjoyable when it provided some shade from the sun. This was an easy walk for us, but does require the ability to climb stairs so that might be an issue for some. Didn't have our kids with us, but had they been they would've been able to complete this walk, but probably wouldn't have enjoyed it quite as much as we did.

“nice walk”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

3rd week of a vacation (Tn.& Mo.) got lost (again) found a sign pointing out fort. What we found was a very beautiful park. small parking lot, no fees no buildings, several small pedestals with information of what you are seeing and what was there. One can follow the ramparts, or walk the dry mote and imagine trying to storm the walls. very nice views of the valley and town of Franklin. A great place to let the kids loose and burn off some energy.

“Work in progress”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Markers give you a visual of what the fort would of looked like. A little hard to see surroundings due to the trees.

“A Little Scary”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

Difficult to find. Tucked down a gravel road behind a bunch of buildings. The day we were there it was full of teenagers who looked to be up to no good. Very limited parking and you don't have to walk far until you are totally out of sight of the parking area. Didn't feel like we should leave the car with all the teens around who were climbing all over the redoux's and seemed to be up to nothing but mischief.

“Beautiful park for a Hike”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

We enjoyed this park and the hike. Getting to see where the soldiers held their ground and to stand where they stood to watch for the enemy was a great experience.
