This was an interesting stop. I didn't have a ton of time so didn't get to explore the entire fortress, but did walk the trails to two of the lunettes. There is plenty of signage to understand the significance and activities that went on there. It is quite overgrown but you can tell, based on the earth works, it was a Civil War fort. There is plenty of free parking. Lots of walkers/joggers on the paved trails.

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. We viewed several of the features, but didn't make it to the farther away ones as we were on a schedule to get to our next stop as early as possible. Some of the features were difficult to see clearly due to all the vegetation, but it was interesting to visualize what it must have been like back during the war. I also like that it was free, and early in the morning there's no problem finding a parking space.

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 backed by woods, making these a quiet, peaceful spot. It's definitely a nice location for a walk, enhanced by somewhat unique historical elements of the site.

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 Greenway.

although the vegetation has taken over quite a bit of the area you can still see the remains of how the fortress was setup as you walk along the path and read the signs it give you a more in depth picture
