The reward of traveling this famous mountain road: unbelievable views
Admit it: You want a “This Car Climbed Mt. Washington” bumper sticker. And the only way to get it comes with lots of other rewards, like astonishing views across several states and mountain ranges. The bumper sticker is yours if you drive yourself up the Mt. Washington Auto Road, with several scenic pull-offs along the way. Or, you can take a tour, led by an experienced guide. The views from the summit, the highest peak in the Northeast, will stay with you for a lifetime. You can also arrange to be part of a sunrise or sunset tour, or (for early risers and birders) Bicknell’s thrush tours. In the winter, SnowCoach tours take you to the treelined, with breathtaking views overlooking the Great Gulf Wilderness and Presidential Mountain Range.
