Mount Washington Auto Road, Gorham NH

2-Hour Guided Tours 

Availability starting July 1st - Reservations Required

We are pleased to offer our guided tours with a few modifications to keep our employees and guests safe during COVID19
Guided Tours offer a unique opportunity to learn the true nature and history of Mount Washington and the historical Auto Road. Driven by one of our accomplished and dedicated tour guides, your “stage driver” will offer stories, anecdotes, legends, history and insight into the ecological wonder of Mount Washington as well as point out interesting features and scenic opportunities from the base to the 6,288-foot summit. Refer to the calendar below for available trips and operating hours.

Please note, Guided Tours are NOT a replacement for the Hiker Shuttle. Reserving a seat on a 2-hour tour to get a ride down the mountain is not permitted. Guided Tour drivers bring guests from the base to the summit and then bring the exact same group of guests down the mountain. Guided Tours start at the base of the mountain and end at the base of the mountain.
