Mount Washington Auto Road, Gorham NH

Status & Weather 



Current Road Status

The Mount Washington Auto Road is currently closed for operations as we work on Spring Clearing of the Auto Road.

The Road is not currently open.


"When will you be open?"

Typically the answer would be mid to late May depending on weather - it's been that way for decades.  

But these are extraordinary times given the COVID-19 pandemic.

So we don't know the answer to this question yet. We will make the call to open based on public safety, CDC guidelines for social distancing, using decisions made by our local Government, and what our partners at the Summit are planning as well. 


We hope you will continue to follow us on social media for fun, more photos and progress updates.
