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.

A very nice area to hike, my dog and I had a good time. Trails are wide enough for two people to walk next to each other with room to spare, except for a couple of spots that were a little tight. The hiking trails had several rocky areas that were a little slippery due to the rain earlier in the morning.
Parking is questionable and very limited. I'd like to go back again soon. Take the side trails if you are looking for an actual hike if not the main path is crushed gravel and very wide.
