Description:

Valley Forge, 22 miles northwest of Philadelphia, was the site of George Washington's army's winter camp in 1777-1778. The army camped here as they prepared to fight the British, who were threatening to march on Philadelphia, the colonial capital. Visitors can enter the log cabins that sheltered Washington and his men, imagining the cold and wet winter that the army spent there; bike or walk the trails that wind their way through the Park; or enjoy a picnic in the scenic hills of the Park.
