We visited the fortress in the morning before continuing our journey. The park is used for exercise and walking babies, (from the visitors we saw), and we read several of the info panels along the walk. It's easy to walk as the paths are paved....More

I stopped here briefly while visiting the sites associated with Stones River National Battlefield. The fortress is an old earthwork fort, and is not covered with grass and trees. There's a decent-sized parking lot and walking trails which wind behind the earthworks. The trail is...More

Located next to Old Fort Park, Fortress Rosecrans was once a Union depot during the Civil War. Real soldiers built up the hills for storing supplies taken off trains, and signs reveal a little-known part of local history. Follow the paths to explore the scenic...More

Visited with family & kids. Must read the signs posted along the paths. This is a site that had to be rescued from development. Of the 200 acres of the original fortress only about 1/4 remains, but is worth seeing.

The remains of the fort are being reclaimed by nature, and can be hard to visualize under the uncut tall grass, brush and trees. The intreprative signs are heavily aged and often difficult to read. Perhaps there was a time when they cut the grass...More
