This trail is part of Pinkerton Park and takes you to the top of a overlook hill facing picturesque downtown Franklin. Hike is short and heavy pedestrian traffic since they cleared the trail even more the past year. Fun, small hike for families and kids as the overlook includes Civil War facts about Fort Granger.
There is a paved walking trail around the Park and the Fort Granger trail starts at the back of the park. Look for the well beaten dirt path that crosses the creek.

My kids had a blast with the trail around the perimeter of the old Fort Granger. Even learned a few things on a beautiful April day.

Easy, paved trail with some cute views. Only about a mile, include a loop around in the middle.

Not much of a trail but always fun going up.

Very muddy in some parts. Only one overlook on the short loop.

Was originally planned to continue further west but that idea seems to have been abandoned. Used a lot by dog walkers. Its a pleasant enough walk, just not much to it and no climbs. There is not a waterfall but the trail passes over the Harpeth River (which is more like a small creek here)
