Create an itinerary including Mount Washington
Mount Washington features a sprawling urban vista, two of the oldest funiculars in the world, and a row of fine-dining restaurants. The neighborhood is a business district and a forested hiking spot at the same time. Take advantage of its geographical position and photograph the skyline from one of four overview decks. The area is accessible by car, but it's more fun to use the 1870 and 1877 lifts to get up and down the mountain. At the top station, you can learn about their history. By using our Pittsburgh attractions app, you can arrange your visit to Mount Washington and other attractions in Pittsburgh.

  • We drove up and walked around. You can watch the Duquesne incline and wander around the station as well as get pictures on its observation platform.

  • We had a great time despite a rainy cold day. Take the funicular up or visit on a Sunday by car when parking is free.
