Mt. Washington Travel Guide

Mt. Washington

At 6,288 feet, Mt. Washington is the highest peak in the northeastern United States. The world's highest winds, 231 mph, were recorded here in 1934. You can take a guided bus tour, a drive, or a hike to the summit. A number of trails circle the mountain and the other peaks in the Presidential Range, but all of them are strenuous. It gets cold up here: even in the summer, you'll want a jacket.
