The 12.2 km (7.6 mi) Mount Washington Auto Road takes you to the summit of the Northeast's highest peak. Take a guided tour, or drive on your own.

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.
