The purpose of the Valley Forge Historical Trail is to allow for both historic and recreational enjoyment of Valley Forge.  Anyone will find the trail a pleasant way to spend a day in the park.


Historically speaking, Scouts have been visiting Valley Forge since scouting began in America in 1910.  In 1912, Scouts held their first Valley Forge Pilgrimage.  Take your scouts on a historic trail of Valley Forge Park.  Discover the site of the most famous of George Washington’s military encampments of the Revolutionary War!
