Take a ride on one of Pittsburgh’s most recognizable attractions! Although, extremely popular with tourist Pittsburgh’s Duquesne Incline has plenty to offer for those of us who are local to the area. My wife, Pam, is the Girl Scout troop leader of troop # 52669. She always looking for fun ideas that help create an enjoyable experience for the kids!
Recently, I was searching online and discovered that the Duquesne Incline offers a Scout Patch Program. I feel this can be a great learning experience for our youth and the opportunity to capture breath-taking views of our beautiful city!
SCOUT PATCH PROGRAM
Available daily – except Saturdays and Sundays after 12:00 noon due to weekend crowds and limited space.
