Due to its remarkable location, weather, and history, the Mt. Washington Auto Road is unlike any other driving experience in the Eastern United States. A trip on Mt. Washington Auto Road is a one-of-a-kind experience offering ever-changing weather extremes, panoramic views and the opportunity to pass through four distinct climate zones as you climb to the highest peak in the Northeast.
The constantly-changing weather adds to the allure and mystique of the famous peak, often allowing visitors to experience high winds and dramatic cloud formations. With an average grade of 12%, a single mile of hard-packed gravel road around mid mountain, and above-treeline views beginning at 4,200 feet, this is truly one of the most spectacular drives in the Northeast!
Upon passing through the Toll House you will receive an envelope with a lot of very important information and your famous "This car climbed Mt. Washington" bumper sticker.
Before arrival please consider downloading our NEW APP for a private guided Drive Yourself tour of the Auto Road. With points of interest at GPS located points of the road- you're sure to have an amazing drive up the historical Mt. Washington Auto Road! The App includes ascent and descent information!

If you are a first time visitor who is not comfortable with heights or narrow mountain roads without guardrails, you may choose to enjoy one of our comfortable guided tours rather than driving your own vehicle.
