Amazing history, well maintained and easy to navigate....plan on spending the day.

Great site. HIke is a simple walk to the base of the monuments.

A site dedicated to a very bloody battle in the Civil War. There's a lot of trails with varying lengths, all seemed easy. Watch the film in the visitor center for some insight.
The NPS tried to save all the battlefield they could, but the sprawl of the town swallowed up a lot of it.

It's a historical path through a Civil War Battlefield. It's not a hiking trail. However, if you love history and nature, this combines both. Visit the Welcome Center for a map and take a self-guided tour of The Battle of Stones River.

This is a nicely maintained trail. I wish I could have seen all of it.

Hiked here with pup at least once a month. There are trails and greenways. Hiked 3.4 and only around half mile was on greenway. If you don’t know area get map from visitor center

These trails feature a great mixture of flat and climbing. As this part of coastal Florida goes, it is not that terribly rooty or sandy. Lots of shade. Well maintained. Deer, dillo, squirrels, raccoons. Great for walking too.

Come here during fall would be nice but not summer.

I am leaving a low review because the name is misleading. This is NOT a trail. This is a greenway. If you are biking or running, it’s great. But we brought our dogs and they will probably now have blisters on their feet because it is almost ALL concrete.

The view is definitely worth the extra walk!

Some closure to the trail which surprised us. Not our first trip to Rushmore so we were ok missing some of it. if you are standing at the viewing area and go to the south, the trail is concrete and will take you around to the closeups of the mountain with just a few stairs at the end. If initially you go towards the sculptures museum you'll climb about 200 boardwalk stairs to make it to the viewing areas. The pines along the trail are beautiful and you are so close you always have a view of the carving. if you have kids and need to wear them out, take the stairs :) they'll love it as well.

Great views, but trail partially closed. And Sculptor's studio closed.

I enjoyed getting to know the Harvard campus and this area of Cambridge.

was partially closed both times we tried in 2017 and 2018

fun, easy trek. pick your pace, enjoy the view :)

Went a few years ago with the kids, would recommend not going during Sturgis

Great Patriotic Experience and a super easy stroll.

The history of the area is nicely displayed. It is a nice paved path so I wouldn't call it a hike.

There are several drop offs and slippery rocks on this trail, as a mom of a 6 year old, it made me nervous. But it was a beautiful and short hike.

This is the nice outdoor stroll especially if you like historical landmarks that you'll be able to pass and/or stop at.

Cool walk! I saw a manatee there for the first time.

Many many times. Best in snow.

Have always loved this place since I was little! A little escape to always free my mind and beautiful scenery, historic sites & the wildlife is amazing!! Riding bikes down the trails or walking/running with my dog is always the best! Never crowded!

What a great day we had! If you want more of an uphill challenge, start the trail near the Welcome Center. If not, start at the picnic area and park on up the hill. Dogwoods and honeysuckle bushes are in bloom now!

nice historic place a must see was there last summer awesome fort

Nice walk. Not really much hiking but rated higher do to scenic views and picnic areas. Great stop if in area to have picnic. There are two trails that aren't very long that trail the creek.
