From our Park Director, An Important Update Regarding Private Tours:

For those individuals or organizations seeking private tours of the battlefield at Monterey Pass, only our staff are allowed to give tours of the Washington Township owned battlefield property. Our park rules and regulations adopted in 2011, prohibits any other public guiding services from giving tours of the Monterey Pass Battlefield Park and Museum.
