Allegheny Portage Railroad National Historic Site Junior Ranger

Children can participate in the Junior Ranger program! Ask at the information desk in the Summit Level Visitor Center for a copy of the park Junior Ranger book for a fun guide to the story of the Allegheny Portage Railroad. Answers to the fun activities are available in the Summit Level Visitor Center, the Engine House No. 6 Exhibit Shelter, the Lemon House, along the park trails, and/or even by assisting with a historic demonstration.

Does your child want to participate in the Junior Ranger program, but cannot easily get to the park site? Just click Junior Ranger Booklet to get your own copy of the book.

Completed Junior Ranger booklets can be sent to:
