Most people come to Valley Forge National Historical Park to learn history, but don’t forget that the park has 19 miles of marked hiking trails throughout. And, while the other hike at Valley Forge is easier, this hike has some really nice elevation change and will give you a good workout. You’ll pass a number of historical buildings, including Washington’s Headquarters, where Washington lived when he and his troops camped out during the Revolutionary War. Cross PA 23 at the pedestrian walkway and turn right onto a footpath that will take you across a bridge and to the trailhead.
