What is the Mount Washington Cog Railway?

Love Trains, History or Fun?

The Mount Washington Cog Railway, located in scenic Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, is a narrated 3-Hour-Round Trip train ride to the summit of Mount Washington, the highest peak in the northeast USA, on a historic and awe-inspiring railway. Averaging around 1 hour each way, you have 60 minutes to explore and take in the Summit of Mount Washington, including the Sherman Adams Visitor Center. Inside the Visitor Center is a museum, post office, small snack bar and 360° views of the surrounding areas including up to 5 states, Canada and the Atlantic Ocean! 

Steeped in history, this marvel of 19th century technology and modern innovation is an exhilarating voyage through landscape and nature. The Mount Washington Cog Railway, a National Historic Engineering Landmark, is a “must do” for any visit to New England.

When you ride The Mount Washington Cog Railway, you’re in for an unforgettable adventure. Magnificent scenery…efficient new biodiesel locomotives and the classic steam engines (generally scheduled twice each day)…combined with a spectacular climb up the highest mountain in the Northeast provide the voyage of a lifetime.
