Valley Forge was the site of the 1777-78 winter encampment of the Continental Army. The park commemorates the sacrifices and perseverance of the Revolutionary War generation and honors the ability of citizens to pull together and overcome adversity during extraordinary times.

Heavily trafficked trail. the back side of the trail around horseshoe, and misery were less crowded ave most challenging considering it wasn't paved like the rest of the trail. nonetheless great history and sights to be seen

Kind of a muddy walk, but the trail is very well maintained, allowing for a pleasant hike on a rainy February afternoon. There are a few great sights overlooking the park that make the steeper parts of the trail worth it.

Very nice trail for trail running. I parked in the Knox Tinder parking lot and ran up Mount Joy out to route 23 and then went up Mount Misery down to Yellow Springs. Steep in spots and easy to stay on course compared to some challenges I had with Misery. Was raining slightly and saw a handful of others including a Boy/Cub scout troop but had a lot of it to myself. Just need to pay attention to rocks while running and one really fast downhill but overall great trail.
