There are many ways for children and families to enjoy your National Park.

Junior Ranger

Demonstrations
In good weather there are a variety of demonstrations done by costumed park rangers. Many times the ranger needs YOUR help. It may be something simple like handing a tool when needed, or you may be put to work making rope!

Scout Programs

We welcome your scout troop to Allegheny Portage Railroad National Historic Site. Scouts can participate in the Junior Ranger program or participate in a self-guided tour of the park. For more information, contact (814) 886-6150.
