Comments: The numerous trails of beautiful Warwick County Park take you through hardwood forests, meadows, and wetlands beside French Creek. The Horse-Shoe Trail, extending from Valley Forge to the Appalachian Trail, adds length to the numerous miles of multi-use park trails. In the 18th and 19th centuries, Warwick's woodlands provided much of the raw timber used to make charcoal for the region's iron furnaces and forges. Remains of the iron industry can still be seen at various charcoal hearths along old cart paths. The park also features Pennsylvania’s only surviving Fink Truss, patented by Albert Fink in 1854. Historic Saint Peters Village is a small, late 19th century industrial "company village" at the Falls of French Creek.
