Allegheny Portage Railroad National Park Service U.S. Department of the Interior Allegheny Portage Railroad National Historic Site Trails We all know that biking, hiking, and other forms of outdoor recreation are good for our health. A National Park Service (NPS) study found that people who exercise regularly spend 30 percent fewer days in the hospital than people who do not. But did you know that biking and hiking are also good for the health of our national parks? Bicycling, hiking, and walking are effective and pleasurable alternatives to motor vehicle travel. NPS is exploring the use of these and other transportation alternatives to accommodate more park visitors while alleviating congestion, protecting park resources, and improving the visitor experience.
