Passengers will experience a sense of adventure and history on the Mount Washington Cog Railway's 3-hour guided train tour to the highest peak in the Northeast. With approximately one hour to spend at the 6,288 foot summit, visitors can take in the spectacular panoramic view, spanning the mountains and valleys of New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont, north into Canada, and east to the Atlantic Ocean.
Visitors will delight in exploring the mountain-top community which includes the Sherman Adams Visitors Center, Mount Washington Observatory's Weather Museum and 1853 Tip Top House. Visitors can send a postmarked stamp from the top of Mount Washington and get their photo taken at the summit marker.
Whether examining the history and memorabilia of The Cog at the Marshfield Station, where the original "Old Peppersass" engine is on display, or exploring the fascinating weather and ecosystem of the mountain at the summit of Mount Washington, visitors will find plenty to thrill and entertain at the Mount Washington Cog Railway.
Passengers may choose to take the three-hour round trip in a vintage coach powered by a historic steam locomotive or the more modern and eco-friendly biodiesel engines. Check the schedule online for available trains and times. Due to the popularity of trips, advance booking is recommended.
Hop aboard today, and enjoy the ride!
