Mt Washington Auto Rd, Gorham

(4.4/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
The 12.2 km (7.6 mi) Mt Washington Auto Rd takes you to the summit of the Northeast's highest peak. Take a guided tour, or drive on your own. If you choose the latter, pick up an audio CD from the ticket office to accompany your drive with information about the geography, history, and lore of the mountain. As you ascend, each turn reveals breathtaking views of the Presidential Range. Your ticket for the road also includes admission to the summit's Extreme Mount Washington experience at the observatory, where you can learn about the mountain's winter. Be aware that the auto road is narrow and winding and doesn’t have guardrails. Nervous drivers should opt for the tour.
