Mount Washington Cog Railway

White Mountain New Hampshire Attraction

Mt. Washington Cog RailwayBase Station Road, Bretton Woods, NH • Ph: 603-922-8825

Ride the World’s First Mountain climbing train to the top of Mount Washington – the highest peak in New England! The beauty of the mountains and the thrill of ascending the Northeast’s highest peak are just as enchanting today as they were in 1869, when Sylvester Marsh opened the world’s first mountain-climbing railroad on New Hampshire’s Mount Washington.

Review“A great experience to enjoy, it’s more about the journey than the destination. You’re likely not going to see much at the top of Mt. Washington other than clouds and hoards of tourists, so sit back and enjoy the unique method of getting there and back. This would also be a great thing to do with kids. A few drawbacks to consider: Those with handicaps or portly stature will not be able to get on the train. It’s a bit absurdly expensive at $62 a pop. The seats of some of the trains are really old and uncomfortable with old wire frame under paddingless fabric. The loudspeaker spouting off historical info, along with the tour guide, is way too loud and persistent.” – Yelp Review

Review“I brought more than twenty of my employees on the Mt. Washington Cog to celebrate the conclusion of our company’s “Biggest Loser” event. EVERY employee raved about the experience. The views were magnificent. Most of all the train ride itself with the knowledgeable brakeman was absolutely amazing. The history of the mountain while taking in the views was a once in a life time experience. More than one employee was heard saying “I will remember this day forever”. I think that sums up the experience in a nutshell.” – Trip Advisor Review
