VALLEY FORGE PARK

Historic Fall Foliage

The architectural icons of Valley Forge pop against a background of fall colors and a clear, azure sky. Catch them all: the huts of the Muhlenberg Brigade, the National Memorial Arch, Washington's Headquarters and Washington Memorial Chapel.

Valley Forge - Wayne's Woods

Wayne's Woods

Wayne's Woods picnic area and the maple trees behind its Mad Anthony Wayne statue, on South Outer Line Drive, provide the perfect backdrop for this bronze monument to a storied General and the Pennsylvania troops who encamped at Valley Forge.

Valley Forge - Bike Tour

Valley Creek

Just around the corner to the left is a gorgeous must-see vista dotted with authentically replicated log soldiers' huts. There's no denying the beauty of the area along the Valley Creek between Mt. Misery and Mt. Joy. The trees and even the vines here take on breathtaking deeper colors.

Summer Programming - Washington's Headquarters

Washington's Headquarters

Stop off at Washington's Headquarters, the original stone structure where Washington planned training for his troops and strategies for battles to come, during the Continental Army's six-month encampment here. The house is flanked by deciduous trees and, therefore, enveloped in color every fall.

Valley Forge - Varnum's Headquarters

Grand Parade

Straight ahead, along Route 23, marvel at the splash of colors that is the Grand Parade. The expanse is safeguarded by a statue of the Baron Friedrich von Steuben, the Prussian who forged Washington's rag-tag army into the fighting force that went on to win American independence. Within walking distance is the fieldstone Varnum's Quarters, surrounded by trees to create a stunning seasonal scene.
