Sunrise Drives on Mt. Washington

The Mt. Washington Auto Road opens early on two to three Sundays every summer, allowing guests to drive themselves to the summit of Mount Washington to view the sunrise from the highest peak in the Northeast.

Due to the popularity of these sunrise opportunities, we recommend not waiting until the last minute to arrive as you may spend time waiting at the Toll House due to traffic.

The State Park building on the summit will be open with limited food service on these mornings.

Alton Weagle Day

Alton Weagle had a passion for Mt. Washington. To show his passion, he climbed the Mt. Washington Auto Road in a number of unique ways: by car, on foot, walking backwards, blindfolded and finally pushing a wheelbarrow full of sugar…just to name a few. This day honors his spirit and the spirit of all the camels, Segways and even the odd pogo sticks that have been the first up the mountain – think you’re up to it?

We invite you to dream up a “first ascent” of some kind and run the idea by us – you just may get invited to celebrate with us!

Sunrise Snow Coach Tours

Experience an unforgettable winter sunrise at treeline from the comfort of the Mt. Washington SnowCoach.

Our experienced SnowCoach drivers will take you to treeline (weather permitting) at 4,200 feet on the Mt. Washington Auto Road for a chance to watch the sun rise. We leave promptly at 5:45 am from the base lodge, and will not hold back the trip as we need to keep a tight schedule throughout the day for all our guests.

Even if we don’t actually get to the see the sun rise, you can be sure the early morning lighting at treeline will make for incredible and unforgettable scenes. Although you are riding in a heated van, you should dress warmly as you will have an opportunity to get out of the SnowCoach for pictures and to experience the weather on Mount Washington.
