Hike in Valley Forge away from the crowds - follow the river and the railroad tracks.

Construction on Sullivan's Bridge at the downriver end of the trail may impede access. Park at Washington's Headquarters (or at the chapel and pick up the trail in the middle).

Description

This trail runs from Washington's Headquarters area to the abandoned Valley Forge Park Train Station. It follows the Schuylkill River and passes behind Washington Memorial Chapel. Most of the trail is easy with one section of switchbacks. This section can easily be replaced with a easier rolling path by taking the side trail towards Varnum's Woods.

This is not a super scenic trail, but it gets you away from the crowds on the main loops. This trail is popular for horses and mountain bikes and, at times, tracks closely to the railroad tracks.

The trail connects with the Joseph Plumb Martin Trail and will directly connect to the Schuylkill River Trail once the Sullivan Bridge is completed across the Schuylkill River.
