“Easy trip to a great view!”

Park at Station market and ride the incline up to the great views on Mt Washington. Bring some cash (small bills) as they require exact change (they will take more but you won't get anything back!). $3.50 round trip for adults is a real bargain and the overlooks at the top are not to be missed!

“A pittsburgh bucket list must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

You kill two birds with one stone. You ride the incline and visit Mt. Washington which provides a gorgeous panoramic view of pittsburgh. The ride on the incline is fun and allows you to view the point and three rivers up close.

“Great Way to Travel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Great way to get to downtown Pittsburgh from Mt. Washington. The view of downtown is spectacular from Mt. Washington. Visit Shiloh Street near the incline to get something to eat or have a drink.
