Betzwood Trailhead is part of the 3,500 acre Valley Forge National Historical Park. This large, wooded trailhead provides parking for at least 80 cars in a pleasant setting and provides restrooms, drinking water, picnic area, boat launch and access to more miles of great trails within the park.
Trail Update - Sullivan’s Bridge: The main facilities at Valley Forge National Historical Park and the rest of the extensive trail system through the park can be accessed from the Picnic Area on foot using the cantilevered access along Rt. 422. However, a new bike/pedestrian bridge is currently being constructed in Valley Forge to bring trail users across the Schuylkill River. Known as Sullivan’s Bridge, it will replace the existing walkway alongside Route 422. Estimated date of completion is May 2016. Learn more about the Sullivan’s Bridge project.
Services can be found 0.75 miles away on Trooper Road.
Trooper Road can only be accessed from 422 Westbound and exits onto 422 Eastbound only. Use the full intersection with Route 23 at Valley Forge if traveling in an opposing direction.
The SRT section from Valley Forge to Mont Clare is mostly off road with a paved surface and a gentle grade of less than 3%. However, a short section of trail south of Mont Clare is currently on road. The trail from Valley Forge to the city limits of Philadelphia is off-road with a paved surface and gentle grade.
