Fort Martin Scott Historic Site


Take a self-guided walk at the site of a pre-Civil War (1848) military outpost to learn about one of the first frontier Army forts in Texas. Enter through the Fort's gate or through the Former Texas Rangers site. Owned and operated by the City of Fredericksburg. A new nature trail has been built and begins on the north side of Fort Martin Scott and winds along Baron's Creek for about half a mile where you can see wildlife and wildflowers. At the trail head, there is a bird blind built by The Fredericksburg Rotary Club. With the loop trail at the Fort, the total trail length is approximately one mile long.
