Mount Washington Cog Railway
A trip to the White Mountains is not complete without seeing the views from the highest peak in the northeast at the top of Mount Washington. There are 3 ways to get to the top of Mount Washington, hike it, drive it, or take The Mount Washington Cog Railway.
I can’t hike up a hill never mind a 6,288-foot mountain, plus I have three kids in tow so that option went out the window quickly.
Many people drive up the mountain, however, I get an anxiety attack driving in town, so windy roads on the side of a mountain didn’t sound like a peaceful afternoon. Plus I had nightmares of my brakes failing and my car overheating when I considered it, so driving was a “no-way”.
The Cog Railway was exactly what we needed. We pulled up, and parked, got our tickets, then sat back and enjoyed the views throughout the 3-hour guided train tour.
