Great place to go birding. Definitely will come back, very peaceful!

Absolutely beautiful park!

It is a very nice place to take your dogs and just have a nice day walking and playing. Highly recommend.

beautiful trail, but not marked well. got lost lol.

Good beginners trail. Enjoyed the walk. Three hours with nature!!!!

Great hike, devils pool is refreshing.....but rocks are very slippery! Hardly any restrooms though

great for kayaking

Great area to hike and fish

It is a good trial did it with my family any bike works and it was a breeze but the kids had some trouble going up the hills

Love!! Went here because it’s close to my sisters in the city but still on the way from Chalfont area. Hike was a workout and kicked my butt! (In the best way of course). I loved that it was easy enough but harder than most of my go-to trails. Will definitely be returning :) watch for the little spiders that build their web right across the trails!

very hilly

Took the Old Mill Trail from the gravel lot on Deerwood Lane to the river crossing and then through the woods to the Quarry Trail. Stopped for lunch with hammocks next to the lake and followed Quarry Trail back along the lake and back onto Old Mill Trail. Old Mill Trail was pretty muddy after a heavy rain on previous day, but manageable with waterproof hiking boots. Not a very scenic trail, but wide and well maintained. Frequent horse manure. Saw a few fishermen and other hikers, but not many. Old Mill Trail had pretty wildflowers and butterflies were abundant. Even the walk back along the lake didn’t afford many views. Nice trail, with gradual inclines, but not much to see.

nice terrain variations and degrees of difficulty, beautiful woodland scenery

Considering it’s just a few miles outside of the city it’s an amazing place to get away and go for a 3 mile walk or so. Actually ended up going fishing one time and had a great experience. Beautiful place to visit

Sometimes muddy, always beautiful

Great trail for beginners. Beautiful place, not crowded at all. Creek and waterfall were nice.

Great experience!

Great hike. Deeper in the woods was a bunch of muddy spots but is drying out. Kids ages 13, 11 and 7 did the hike with no complaints! Good trail but can get turned around easily.

Great for hiking, not suitable for biking at all, unless you want a very rough ride.

Nice Hike, but the views were limited. A few discoverables (creek, old house, chimney, fireplace/seat). We started 7am, and by our finish at noon, the trails were starting to get busy. We did approximately 9.5 miles of the loops, by backtracking around on previous paths. LOTS of thorn bushes encroaching on the paths. This is more of a workout type of hike, but still pretty good.

Very nice trail for walkers, runners and bikers... I would say for most of activities that fits to all the ages. Great nature watch trail with a long distance...

Pretty good! I think the trail changed bc you can see a white arrow that gets blacked out, and an alternative route- so it may be different from the map outline shown on the app. From the stables, you follow the paved road for a bit, passing two yellow trail entrances, and finally hit a blue AND white entrance. Starts together, then separates

Not many views, some wild flowers were out. We ate lunch at the lodge sitting in the chairs overlooking the valley. We used this hike more as a work out. We ended up covering 5.8 miles and 968 feet.

This was our first visit to Valley Forge National Historical Park and it won’t be our last. The trail is paved most of the way so it is perfect for an easy walk through history. The last mile or so is near a busy road, but besides that the experience was very enjoyable.

Great, relaxed Friday afternoon/evening hike! Trails were very easy to follow and I saw quite a bit of wildlife. The tulip poplars are beautiful in the evening sun. I also loved seeing all the old homesteads and tumbled rock walls. Great sense of history. I'll be back to do more exploration on the side trails.

Great view !

Good hiking, some deep incline keeps the variety. But the trail markers are very poorly kept. Pretty hike, spots by the water are gorgeous. Plenty of areas for rest and to refill on water.
