Gorgeous views of the city and the 3 rivers from the top. Try taking one of the inclines to the top and walking to the other one (about a mile).

Even though I live in Pittsburgh, I never tire of going to Mt Washington to view the city. It is spectacular. I would recommend for all visitors to our city. Night is a great time to see the city all lit up & especially if there is a Pirate game with the PNC lights. A must see!!

The Mount Washington view point ( next to Dunseque incline)has apparently been adjudged as 2nd best view in US. So you have to go there if in Pitt. Trust me - it does not disappoints. Restaurants around are pricey, so take the cheap incline rider down and go to eat at city.
