Mt Washington Auto Road Views

The Mt. Washington Auto Road is an attraction not to be missed when you are visiting the White Mountains of New Hampshire.  There are several ways to get to the top to enjoy the spectacular views: Hike (its a long one!), Cog Railway (a bit pricey), or my favorite – drive the Mt. Washington Auto Road to the Summit!!

MT. Washington Auto Road Discounts at the Bartlett Inn.  When you stay at the Bartlett Inn near North Conway and Jackson New Hampshire you receive a guest voucher for a FREE adult passenger for the Mt Washingto Auto Road  woth $8.00.  We highly recommend this “Drive Yourself” to the Top route to the top of Mt Washington NH.  Innkeepers will check the webcams to let you know if it is in the clear or in the clouds.   This week has offered 2 day sof almost 100 mile visibility!  Innkeepers took family up on Monday last week and risked the clouds….but look at the picture…sometimes breaks in the clouds offer fantastic views and photo opportunities.  The Auto Road is fun to drive, less expensive than the Cog Railway to the top and a lot easier on the legs thatn hiking the whole way up!  There is also a van tour ride up the Auto Road.  We prefer the self drive because it allows you to drive and visit the top in your own time.  With the van ride or the Cog there are some time restirictions where you have to cathc your ride down in 30 minutes or so time frame.  This does not allow you to enjoy a coffee in the canteen, the 3 gift shops, the Weather Observatory Museum, the Tip Top House Museum not to mention the many hikes and views from every angle of the top of Mt Washington.

Mount Washington Auto Road Pinkham Notch New Hampshire Drive to the Sky

Mount Washington Auto Road located in Pinkham Notch, New Hampshire really is a Drive to the Sky!  We took a ride up the Mount Washington Auto Road last week when the visibility was over 80 miles.  It was beautiful.  The whole family enjoyed the information CD that played in our car on the drive up.  At the top we were able to get handicap parking and wheelchair my dad into the canteen to enjoy the views of the Presidential Mountain Range and a coffee.  We were even able to use the service elevator to get downstairs to the museum in the lower lever of the Mt Washington Observatory.  If travelers are agile they can also enjoy the Tip Top House Museum and take a picture on the summit of Mt Washington with the sign and elevation.   Some of the alpine garden flowers we saw in the museum were also in bloom and tine but colorful to see. Mark your calendar that the Mt Washington Auto Road in Gorham, NH will open early 3 times this summer of 2012 for a Sunrise drive to the Summit:  330 AM June 24th, 400 AM July 29th, 430 AM August 26th  and just $25 for car and driver plus $8.00 additional passenger.  Bartlett Inn guests will receive discount coupons for a FREE passenger.  Call Bartlett Inn at  1 800 292 2353.
