The 26-year-old signed a two-year deal with the West Country club after spending six years with the Aggborough outfit.
Hinton rejected the offer of a new deal with the Worcestershire-based side and he is set to move to The Memorial Stadium - subject to the player passing a medical.
The defender's move to The Pirates will reunite him with his former youth coach at Birmingham City in Kevan Broadhurst, who looks set to become assistant manager to Rovers boss Ian Atkins for next term.
"Craig is a very solid defender. He is quick and has a very good footballing brain," Broadhurst told the Bristol Evening Post.
"We are delighted to have him. He can play in a number of positions in the backline from centre back to full back and also wing back."
