Create an itinerary including Duquesne Incline
A funicular that scales Mount Washington, Duquesne Incline was built to carry cargo up the mountain. In the late 19th century, the tram began hauling passengers, and it still does today, transporting locals to work as well as visitors. The line has been completely renovated, with the paint scraped off to reveal the original woodwork. The lower station is in Pittsburgh's South Side neighborhood and has also been renovated to reveal the original facade. The attraction is considered an icon of Pittsburgh because it offers views of the city's downtown Golden Triangle and because it's listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

  • Inexpensive, yet fun experience to get the best view of the city. We had a great time! The trolley was a little old, but did its job getting us up the incline and back.

  • The Duquesne incline was a nice little attraction. If you are afraid of heights you might want to skip it. Not much to do up top but view Pittsburgh below.
