One of the few remaining inclines left in the US. A great piece of Pennsylvania history. Well maintained and the view is amazing! Just be warned that there are no restrooms at the top and only a porta potty at the bottom. Great restaurants available at the top on Mt. Washington!

Before we came to Pittsburgh, everyone told us we needed to do the Duquesne Incline. We are glad we did and agree that it is a must. It is inexpensive, and although it's a short ride, there is a prize at the top, in terms of truly magnificent views. We took a taxi to the bottom, then rode up and... More

We were told it was ranked 2nd, but it is AMAZING to see. Woderful view of the many bridges and Heinz Field. A must see even if you don't ride the incline. Interesting history there.

We came at a perfect time where the line was fairly short and we got on in about 20 minutes or so. The people working here are very friendly and helpful. It's a real inconvenience that they only accept cash, though. The ride was a little nerve-racking because you can tell everything is so old. The ride was awesome, though,... More

This was a very inexpensive thing to do in the Burgh!! Something everyone who visits the city should do. The view from Mt.Washington is amazing!! A little hot inside the car, but it was a 90something degree day. Check it out!

Some of the best views of Pittsburgh available at the top. Ride only takes a couple of minutes, which is good because it is quite warm inside the car.

For $3.50 per adult you can't go wrong. It was a fast and pleasant ride up the mountain, although I would imagine a sunny day would be hot. The trip up led to a path to walk and step out to various lookouts. Great chance for photos and to see the pretty area surrounding the mountain top.

View at the top is stellar, but make sure you have cash, because that's all they accept. The. Ride is hot during this time of year, very little if any ventilation in the car. Not the friendliest staff, but again the view is great at the top

Neat spot-we waited a bit on line, but not that long. Great views of the city and Park Point from the top of the incline. Interesting historical information about town history, with news clippings and pictures at the top.
