"Mt.Washington Auto Road" New Hampshire Things to Do Tip by TouristCraig

New Hampshire Things to Do: 190 reviews and 311 photos


I went up the road when I was much much younger but I remember how high up it was. how scenic it was and how lucky we were not to have driven off the side of the mountain. This road is not for the faint of heart and there is no place to turn around other than the top sucker. The road gets very steep with many curves. There's a reason why so many people put the 'This Car Climbed Mt Washington' bumper sticker on their car! From the summit you can see 5 states and Canada.

Directions: Just 25 scenic minutes north of North Conway village off Rt. 16, 1 mile north of Wildcat Mountain in Pinkham Notch.
