Mount Washington Observatory Summit Partners

Mount Washington Auto Road

No visit to the White Mountains is complete without a drive on the legendary Mt. Washington Auto Road. You’ll experience the dramatic beauty of the mountains, or the weather that Mount Washington is so famous for. The scenic drive takes you through four distinct ecological zones as the 7.6-mile journey gains over 4,000′ in elevation. Guided tours during summer and snowcoach rides in winter are also available, in addition to a hiker shuttle.

Mount Washington Cog Railway

“The Cog” is one of the world’s great rail adventures and an exhilarating journey through history, technology, and nature. Passengers enjoy a dramatic ascent through three climate zones to the top of the highest peak in the Northeast (6288’). An ingenious cog and rack system enables the train to safely negotiate an average grade of 25%. Advanced reservations are recommended.

Mount Washington State Park

Part New Hampshire State Parks, the 60.3-acre Mount Washington State Park is perched on the summit of the Northeast’s highest peak, surrounded by the extensive 750,000-acre White Mountain National Forest. On a clear day, views from the summit extend beyond New Hampshire as far as 130 miles to Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, Maine, Quebec, and the Atlantic Ocean. The Sherman Adams building houses a visitor center, cafeteria, restrooms, gift shops, the Mount Washington Observatory and its museum.
