The Joseph Plumb Martin Trail offers a pleasant, paved loop through Pennsylvania's Valley Forge National Historical Park. Nestled against the wooded Schuylkill River, the park provides a wealth of historical and interpretive sites from the Revolutionary War and is crisscrossed with more than 20 miles of hiking and biking trails (many of which are unpaved) to explore. The trail is named after a solider who served from 1776 to 1783 and left behind writings of his experience.
Nearby—though separated by the river—lies a section of the Schuylkill River Trail, which winds 27 miles from Valley Forge southeast to Philadelphia. Both the Schuylkill trail and the Joseph Plumb Martin Trail are part of a growing 750-mile trail network in the Philadelphia region called The Circuit Trails.
Parking and restrooms are available along the trail throughout Valley Forge National Historical Park (1400 N. Outer Line Dr., King of Prussia).
