A beautiful wooded trail with a fairly steep inclines at spots but well maintained path. The Mountain Laurel cover the mountain making adding to the hike especially when in bloom.

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

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.

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.
