“Hike in Valley Forge away from the crowds - follow the river and the railroad tracks.”— Jeff Menaker
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.
