Great running and bike paths. The trail by the river connects all the way up to Fairmount Park in Philadelphia.
You can spend HOURS here and not know where the time went! Happy trails!
A beautiful park year-round, and great for early-morning runs.
Visit Valley Forge when the weather is nice and you want to enjoy the great outdoors. Escape to Valley Forge when the zombie apocalypse hits. Remember zombies can't climb trees!
Great place for deer watching.
Want to see this!
Bring plenty of water if walking the trail!
One of the best historic places in the Philly area. You can spend all day here and not see everything.
Best place to run in KOP!

This huge park is filled with things to see. The cabins used by the soldiers, Washington Memorial Chapel, the Arch, and tons of hiking trails.
This place looks amazing for running.
Its a great place for a bike ride or jog in the early morning.
Ridin with my girl
Run "the loop." It's hilly, but beautiful.
If you drive through the park, be sure and cross the old covered bridge that crosses the Valley Forge stream. You can park and have several choices for a pick-nic.
If you like watching trains, get a parking spot at the Port Kennedy Station on the east end of the park or sit on a bench at the main station near Washington's Headquarters.
Beautiful park and hiking trails with a visitor center and 10 mile scenic drive with an audio guide. Be sure to check out the local historical places too.
Gorgeous place to take a walk or even ride a bike
Beautiful park and great trails to bike around on!
If you stand under this tree and say Jerry Bruckheimer three times, Nicolas Cage appears with a mysterious novel written by the gods.
The buildings such as the Visitor Center and Washington's Headquarters are open 9-5, but the park grounds are open sunrise to sunset!
They give military discounts for the trolley tour! Did the trolley tour and really enjoyed it! We learned a lot about Valley Forge an it wasn't boring at all!
Great place for a long, pretty, peaceful walk with the dog or the kid or the spouse or any combination of the three!
Snowing in the park, it's kind of creepy.
Try to get Bree for your trolley tour and sit in the back on the left side for the best photo opportunities.
The GW chapel is a must see!!
What were they thinking when they design the visitor center! Talk about out of place.
Great trails for running, biking, and even hiking! Especially beautiful in the fall. Check out the historical movie in the visitors' center if you have time.
catch a trolley tour of the park, or a reenactment...visit the chapel to see a lot of beautiful architecture along with more historical info
Great place to walk/run. Too many old people that don't mind their own damn business though!
