The Friends of Valley Forge Park is a group dedicated to the preservation of the American spirit demonstrated during the winter encampment, to the conservation of the landscape that contained the 1777-1778 encampment of the American Revolution, and to the promotion of today’s Valley Forge National Historical Park.
Join us at Muhlenberg Brigade to experience camp life through interactive activities and special demonstrations such as cooking and bread baking.

National Trails Day ®
Valley Forge NHP will host a Trails Fair in celebration of American Hiking Society’s annual National Trails Day ®. This annual event is a long-standing celebration of America’s magnificent trail systems and its countless supporters and volunteers and is an open invitation to all Americans to get outside and connect with local hiking clubs, community groups, and state and national parks. Join a guided hike, visit the environmental expo, and sign up as a volunteer to help with trail maintenance. Volunteer projects for the day include removing invasive plants along the trail corridor and cleaning up litter along park trails.
Name the New Trail Bridge
A major new trail bridge for pedestrians and bicyclists will be constructed to cross the Schuylkill River within Valley Forge National Historical Park. The trail bridge will link the north and south sides of the Valley Forge National Historical Park with regional trail systems including the Schuylkill River Trail, future Schuylkill River West Trail, Valley Forge's 26 miles of trail, and the Chester Valley Trail and Patriot's Path.
The bridge is expected to be under construction in late 2013 and completed in the fall of 2015. Final selection will be announced in October 2013. Recipient will be invited and recognized as a special guest to The Friends of Valley Forge Park's annual reception.
