What It’s Like to Drive the Mt. Washington Auto Road

Definitely not for folks with acrophobia, the Mt Washington Auto Road near Gorham, N.H. in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, features stunning mountain views from your car trekking to the 6,288 peak. A long-time favorite New Hampshire travel attraction, the Mt. Washington Auto Road is not only great for its scenery but for the traditional, well-deserved reward on making it to the top: getting a “THIS CAR CLIMBED MT. WASHINGTON” bumper sticker for the car!
