Fort Washington State Park highlighted by Travel Lens

Fort Washington State Park was recently highlighted in a Travel Lens article titled “20 Best Things to Do in Montgomery County, PA”.

The author writes that “Visiting Fort Washington State Park is like stepping into a Jane Austen novel.” It continues:

It’s a treasure in our backyard, incredibly rich in natural beauty and recreational opportunities. One of my favorite things about this 493-acre park is its versatility. Whether you’re into hiking, bird watching, picnicking, or even disc golf, there’s something for everyone.

I often find myself starting the day hiking along the grassy trails. These trails are relatively easy, making them perfect for beginners and casual walkers. After climbing the many steps, the views from the lookout are breathtaking. You can see far out over the park, giving you a tranquil solitude that’s hard to find elsewhere.

Another highlight of the park is the bird observation platform. I’ve lost count of the species I’ve spotted over the years. There’s also a scenic trail by the creek that’s not too crowded and pet-friendly.
