It's an amazing adventure into the past. Kids love the ride up and down the mountain and the view of the Pittsburgh city is breath taking. Trip to Pittsburgh is incomplete if you don't hop on this fun ride.

Beautiful views of Pittsburgh, Heinz Field, PNC Park and the 3 rivers - Allegheny, Monongahela, and the Ohio. Parking lot across the street from the lower level only takes Credit/Debit cards or quarters only.

I was sure this would be the most unintertesting thing I would do this day. And the ride down and up the hill was pretty mundane. It was $5. BUT, for $0.50, you could go down below the trolley entrance and see all the working gear. Reels and cables and pulleys and motors and all kinds of cool stuff. Not... More

Once at the top don't forget to walk two blocks west past the incline's viewing platform for the Point of View park and bronze statue of George Washington and Seneca Indian leader Guyasuta.

The incline gives one a stunning view of the city. Located near Station Square there are many restaurants and exciting things to see nearby. Plenty of parking and easy access into and out of the downtown area.

The top of the incline is on Mt Washington. The view of the Allegheny and Monangahela rivers, the bridges on both and downtown buildings is to die for! An iconic Pittsburgh sight.

Lots of fun. I rode this up the steep incline to the top, taking in the nearby skyline of Pittsburgh across the river, walked around a bit when I got to the top, and then rode it back down again. Very enjoyable.

Really enjoyed our visit to the Duquesne Incline which was recommended to us by a few different Pittsburgh natives. We über end over there after breakfast - it is directly across the river from the Steelers stadium. There was a short line and then we hopped on the funicular that took us up the ver steep incline to the top.... More

Love this incline. The "trolley" cars seem take you back in time, and the observation deck at the top offer great views of Pittsbugh. There is also a gift shop for souvenirs. You can get some great photos from a great vantage point! Definitely worth the $5 pp rd trip.
