AAA Editor Notes
Mount Washington Cog Railway is 6 mi. n.w. on SR 302, then 6 mi. n.e. to 3168 Base Station Rd. Opened in 1869, the historic railway bills itself as the first mountain-climbing cog railway in the world. Coal-fired steam and biodiesel-powered trains take passengers on a scenic 3-hour round-trip to the top of Mount Washington—the highest peak in the Northeast. The base station features a museum that has artifacts, historical displays and video presentations.
