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.

Great easy hike! Very cold but worth it. Liked the historic buildings at the end.

Perfect walking trail with rolling hills and beautiful historic scenery. Great training loop for longer distances.

A wide, very easy stroll through the woods in Valley Forge National Park. There's not much to see along this hike, but you can combine it with the Valley Creek trail in either direction and turn it into a short loop.

Went with first timers and a 4 year old. A lot of incline but we all loved it.

The Mount Joy loop trail is well shaded, rocky in places but a fairly easy trail even for children (mine are 7 & 10). It took us under 2 hours to do the 3.5 miles. The trail is obvious and well groomed. No chance of getting lost. There are no places where you have to scramble over boulders or climb. Parking is abundant at the lot off 252.

Great walking or running trail!

It is great trail!

Love this place. For the most part it is easy paved rolling hills but we added the Mt Misery to Horseshoe Trail which added some nice solid hiking. We ended up doing just over 8 miles but you can shorten it or lengthen it to your desired hiking time. A little touristy due to all the historical significance, but well worth the effort to make this trip.

Great walk in this historic National Park. Loop just under 5 miles. Easy. Heavy traffic on weekends. Perfect for a nice walk in the park.

Great hike with my boys!

Overall, a great trail. My favorite trail parts were in the woods area.

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.
