    Recreation To Enjoy In Valley Forge and Montgomery County

    For a memorable outdoor experience, and one-of-a-kind destinations with a Colonial feel head to the Valley Forge and Montgomery County area of southeastern Pennsylvania. It is here you can enjoy:

    • The 3,500 acres of Valley Forge National Historical Park include nearly 20 miles of marked trails for hiking, jogging or biking. The Joseph Plumb Martin Trail is a 6.6-mile loop past several historical landmarks.

    • Glide over to the John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove. There, canoes, paddles and life vests are available for a leisurely trip down the nearby Perkiomen Creek. Each trip comes complete with its own naturalist who can point out the area’s highlights.

    • Montgomery County also offers a robust network of trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. The Perkiomen Trail winds on a pathway that once held the tracks of the Reading Railroad.
