Valley Forge National Historical Park

There is no better way to experience the history of Valley Forge National Historical Park than with a guided tour. Whether it is a ranger-led walk to the Muhlenberg Brigrade Huts, a 90-minute trolley tour or a leisurely bike tour along the park's trails, guided tours offer an opportunity to learn and explore one of our country's historical treasures.

Due to COVID-19, there have been changes to the guided tours at Valley Forge National Historical Park. Please visit the Park's Virtual Visitor Center for the latest on tours before your visit.

Trolley Tour


A 90-minute trolley tour is a great way to experience the park in the short amount of time. Run by the Encampment Store, these guided tours take you from the Visitor Center to all points of the park, with extended stops at the Muhlenberg Brigade Huts and Washington's Headquarters. Tour times vary by season so be sure to check the Encampment Store's website before planning your visit.

Valley Forge Park Group Tours - Side Panel


Learn about the soldiers who once walked the grounds of Valley Forge as your follow in their footsteps on a 40-minute ranger-led walking tour. Compared to the struggles during the winter of 1777-8, the quarter-mile walk from the Visitor Center to the Muhlenberg Brigade Huts is a breeze.

Attractions - Summer Shore - Bike Ride


If you have a little more time and a little more energy, a guided bicycle tour is a great way to explore the park. The tours follow a five-mile loop that offers a chance to see some of the most important points in the park. Tours are provided by the Encampment Store at Valley Forge
