Our Experience on the Mount Washington Cog Railway

Mount Washington is one of the northeast’s most incredible natural wonders. As the tallest mountain east of the Mississippi, it has tempted adventurers for hundreds of years.

But don’t worry, you won’t need to scale the more-than-one-mile-tall mountain on foot or even in your car.

One of the best ways to experience the wonder of Mount Washington is through the Mount Washington Cog Railway. Read on as we take a closer look at what makes this rail ride exceptional.

Most visitors won’t mind; the deliberate speed means more time to soak in the incredible views. After all, many opt for the railway instead of driving.

The Train Is Slow

The facilities at the summit of Mount Washington is the state park’s observatory museum. They include admission with your ticket, making the price even better!
