Hiked after the rains. Agree that it was pretty muddy but watch for bees depending on the season. There were many small yellow jackets on the trail. Several of us were stung about 10 times in the vicinity of a nest in the ground. The next was barely visible and bees were. hard to tell they were bees. So just watch for these in late July and August. Trail was rocky but not difficult.

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

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

Great trail with a few areas of steeper incline to get the heart really pumping. I did the entire trail, however, I would avoid the southern parts of the trail for the next few weeks until the bugs and flooding die down if you don’t want to deal with gnats and mud. The southern portion was super muddy, I was covered from the knees down by the time I finished. I was also followed by a swarm of bugs and mosquitoes the whole time, and walked through about 7 spider webs on the southern portion. Otherwise, the Boone trail is a really enjoyable, peaceful hike!

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

Hiked this after a storm last night. Wet & muddy, but that's why boots are made. Very nice hike, but the trails are poorly marked. Some signage would be great - Glad I had the All trails app). The bakery in St Peter's village is sweet (pun intended!).

It's not the hidden gem that it used to be but it's still a great place to hike. Most people stick to the lower area but if you're adventurous you can head up top and find an old quarry in the middle of the woods with a pretty cool overlook.

nothing better for chill walk

absolutly beautiful

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!

I walked over a hr though Hibernia Park very relaxing today 7-13-18 a little buggy

What a gem! Loved the cross country feel of this run and the scenery is pristine!

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

Really nicely marked trails. Fun run

best on cooler days as only small sections are tree covered.

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

Great experience!

Trail would be nice if it weren’t for all the graffiti and litter. A decent amount of people were around, and we were the only ones that actually leashes our dog. It’s a shame that others had to ruin the nature.

Not well marked out starting off. Followed blue and then yellow trail markers.
Lots of mud and washed out paths.
My dog loved it.
Cool graffiti and scenery.
Overall ok but maybe go when it hasn’t rained in awhile.
Take time to walk through the little town. Super cute and fun picture spots.

I love this place because of the cute little shops you can visit and the big rocks that you can hop across on the river. There’s an abandoned railroad bridge that is gated off from the world which is disappointing.

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

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.

The description of this place says road bike friendly and it is not. However this place would be awesome with a MTB

Great view !

Nice easy 2.6 mile hike with woods, lakes, and streams. Great place for birding.

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.
