The Duquesne Incline is the one with the better view. This is a must for ALL first time visitors to the City. And not just because of the view. Its part of the history. Imagine seeing these inclines all over the city -- a common form of transport up and down the hills, getting workers from their homes on the... More

I used to live on Mount Washington and ride this incline to work every day. It is a wonderful place to take out of town guests and children. There are always historic pictures in the station houses.

See breathtaking views from the charm of the Duquesne Incline, while the experience is not the quickest, savor every moment it is worth the $5 price! While you ride think of how much history there is in this wonderfully charming experience. Any time of day is a treat. Shows off the city in all of its glory. Unbelievable skyline, rivers,... More

Take these vintage wooden cable cars up, up, up for the best view of Pittsburgh. Go at night...magical. It's a short and beautiful walk over to the other incline for a different view down.

If you're visiting the Burgh' you have to ride this to the top of the hill. The view from the top is beautiful! It's a really neat experience!

The incline offered a look into Pittsburgh's history. There is a museum at the top that was well worth the time. At the top, take a walk to the overlooks and get a sense of how big Pittsburgh really is.

Great views and 5 bucks round trip. Friendly staff. Don't do one way. Not worth having to drive to pick friends up at bottom.

It was a neat experience, especially seeing how this cable car rail system was built in 1877. Parking is $5 for one hour and per person the ride will cost you $5 for a round trip, but the views at the top are wonderful. The best way to view the city and Heinz Field.

Ride was fun, but the views of the city of Pittsburgh were spectacular! Took many photos and can't wait to view them enlarged on my computer!
