We had our grandchildren with us. They enjoyed playing and running in Pinkerton Park. The walk to Fort Granger was pleasant through the park and then up the side of the fort through the trees and over the rocks. We adults found the history interesting, and the kids had fun climbing and running around.

Fort Granger can be accessed directly by traveling down a short dirt road by an industrial facility. As soon as you pass the entrance you can see trenches from the Civil War that surrounded an area used for artillery production. The trenches are very pretty but note that Fort Granger is NOT the location of any battles or conflicts so... More

Like others have said, it is a little difficult to find and located near an industrial area. But a nice place to take a stroll and read a few interpretive signs.

There is no guided tours, it is all self guided, and be prepared for a work out! The paths are clearly marked and WELL taken care of, plus there is informational posts all along the trails. No buildings remain, but use your imagination. The rocky ledge stairs are VERY step and if it rains (like it did for us) watch... More

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... More

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... More

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

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... More

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.

Wide open space to play Frisbee, have a picnic, etc. Short hiking trail with opportunities for beautiful pictures. Great for history buffs too - see the park website for more info on that. I LOVED this place.
