About Cross Mound Park

On site is the only known earthwork of its kind, Cross Mound. Not only is it unique but its purpose is unknown. The trek to the mound and back is about one-half mile but parts are moderately steep. One must cross the WPA Pedestrian Bridge over Salt Creek. This 28-acre park in the southwest part of Fairfield County near Tarlton is open year-round, dusk to dawn. It is a beautiful setting for family gatherings, birding, nature watching, photography, walking. Pets on leash welcome.
