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

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.

This is the embattlements built by the Union forces in one day to stop the Confederate forces and provide elevation for their cannons. It is truly amazing what they created with picks and shovels, and that it still remains.

It's surrounded by factory's and warehouses which is not nice. It could have much better conditions since is located on the top of the hill.

This isn't a bad park and is a nice place to eat a picnic lunch. You can see the original earthworks here and parking isn't great. It's kind of tough to find so don't hesitate to ask a local. I parked on the back road next to a manufacturing facility and was able to get right in and out.
