We had to do this just so we could say we did. Wonderful views of the city and all in all, fun way to go down and to come back up.

I took friends here for their first ride on an incline. They loved the ride and the views. We spent an hour on Mount Washington for them to take in the view & get pictures. They liked it enough we did it again.

The ticketing is a bit confusing, but the experience of the incline is very nice. Great views looking over the city. We also enjoyed walking around the neighborhood at the top, and we loved the evening view as the city skyline lit up.

Took some out of town friends who wanted to do the "most unique Pittsburgh" thing they could find and this was near our hotel and the perfect price. It was short but the overlook at the top was amazing!

Very original, with more than a century of history. You see much of the city on the other side of the river.

We took the incline from Station Square to Mt. Washington for night photos of downtown Pittsburgh. The view was wonderful. It was cold and windy, but worth it. We were able to go inside the incline building to get warm and resume picture taking. We...More
