Comments

Explore beautiful Warwick County Park. Its numerous trails 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. Historic Saint Peters Village is a small, late 19th century industrial "company village" at the Falls of French Creek. It encompasses an 1845-1928 iron mining site at its north end and an 1880-1970 granite quarry site at the south end.
