Rich in modern recreational facilities and historical significance, Fort Washington blossoms with flowering dogwood in the spring. The park takes its name from the temporary fort built by George Washingtons troops in the fall of 1777, before heading to Valley Forge. The park is popular with hikers and picnickers. Birders enjoy the seasonal migration of raptors from the Observation Deck.

Easy trail with moderate foot traffic. Nothing too exciting but made for a nice weekend hike

heavy foot traffic but for a fun trail close to Philadelphia and the suburbs its absolutely worth it.

We had a great time! Gone a few times. Best if you can go midweek as the weekends brings in quite a few people. Well cared for, clean, much to see!

The trail wasn't very challenging but if you want to take a stroll on a relaxing day it's your spot. Got to see some cool wildlife--deer, fox, turkey buzzard. Overall pretty cool spot.

Beautiful trail, easy hike. Quiet.
