Spectacular mountain vistas are your reward when you travel this legendary road to the summit
Drive to the clouds on the legendary Mt. Washington Auto Road, where your reward is breathtaking views of the Presidential Range and Great Gulf Wilderness. On a good day, that means you are seeing all the way into Quebec and beyond, to the Atlantic. Travel to the mountain summit with your own vehicle or on a two-hour guided tour, where you’ll learn about the mountain’s history, flora and fauna. You can also hike to the 6,288-foot summit and take a shuttle back to the base or, on certain days, use your ATV/UTV. See the website for special sunrise drives and guided tours. Learn about the historic attraction at the Douglas A. Philbrook Red Barn Museum just outside the base lodge.
