Came here in the afternoon as part of the Molly's trolley tour. Cost is $2.50 one way. Inexpensive way to view pittsburgh and it's a unique ride. My sons enjoyed it. Try doing it twice - one in the morning and one at night to see the difference. This incline is more modern compared to the other incline. A must... More

Many pictures have been taken from this spot over the years, make yours the next one. You can see for a long long way from this spot and it all looks so cool. There's also restaurants up here.

If people come to visit me in Pittsburgh, PA I always ask, "May I take you on a tour of the city?" Whether they are a first time visitor returning after 20 years, I always take them to Mt.

This mode of transportation is extremely rare to find in the United States. The incline actually moves up the side of Mt. Washington. It goes slow enough to really enjoy the amazing sights of the Three Rivers and beautiful Downtown Pittsburgh. Once at the top, make sure you walk along Grandview Avenue . . . high above the city ....

Best way to admire the great three rivers (Allegheny, Monongahela, & Ohio) views of the triangle of Pittsburgh. Especially beautiful when there is fireworks in the city!

Lovely old ride that you enjoy and feel its rich heritage. The views are simply spectacular. The speed is one that is non intimidating. Not too fast nor too slow...

This is a venue that is beloved by Pittsburghers. Many couples get married on one of the dais above the city. The wedding pictures are wonderful with the view of our three rivers in the background. The view Includes both stadiums and point Park with its glorious fountain.

No visit to Pittsburgh is complete unless you take a ride on the Duquesne Incline. Take your time at the top to view the Pittsburgh Point.
