We stopped by the Pinson Mounds with my grandson's scout troop last Sunday. Mostly we just needed a break in our travels and it was enroute. We took an hour and walked around a bit and explored the tallest mound The history was very interesting and I would have liked to have had more time.

This place is awesome if you love to take a long walk. The history of the mounds is fascinating, and the people were friendly and helpful. There's a nice, air-conditioned museum built to look like one of the mounds. The gift shop doesn't offer much, but if you want a glimpse into the past, take the time to watch the... More

If you are looking for a place to ride bikes, picnic, enjoy nature, this is a hidden gem. The site itself is basically the museum built to resemble a native mound,nature trails, a few small mounds, and the remaining large mound The film is boring but the museum has a good collection of items from excavated mounds. Saul's Mound, the... More

The mounds were cool to look at, and we liked that the museum was made to look like a mound. The only disappointment we had was that the boardwalk was closed partway down the trail due to repair and there was no sign indicating that until you walked all the way to the closed portion.

Be sure to wear comfortable clothing and shoes for this primarily outdoor park. There are several Native American mounds located at the park, mostly accessible from walking trails. The largest one is difficult to see because of the trees and underbrush growing on it. However, the most adventurous will get an idea of its size by climbing the many flights... More

I walk the trails here weekly and it's always well maintained. The museum and plaques posted around the mounds are full of information regarding the historical aspect of the area. They have a nice picnic area with a newer, up to date play area for the kids.

This is a very interesting place for archaeology buffs. The main structure, Saul's Mound is 72 feet high and there are stairs to take you to the top. The rest of the area has some other smaller mounds. Everything is covered with trees so it is not as visually arresting as it could be. However, the key to appreciating this... More

Had no idea this was maintained as it is. Hats off to the State of Tennessee in preserving and maintaining history and nature!
