Sunrise Drives

Experience the sunrise from the top of Mt. Washington!

The Mt. Washington Auto Road will open early on three Sundays in 2016, allowing guests to drive themselves to the summit of Mt. Washington to view the sunrise from the highest peak in the Northeast.

Three Sunrise Drives 2016:

Sunday, June 19 – open at 3:30 am |  Sunrise: 5:01 am
Sunday, July 31 – open at 4:00 am  | Sunrise: 5:32 am
Sunday, August 28 – open at 4:30 am | Sunrise: 6:04 am

Due to the popularity of these sunrise opportunities we recommend not waiting until the last minute to arrive as you may spend time waiting at the Toll House due to traffic. The weather can change quickly so our staff stays in contact with road crew for the best places to view the sunrise which may not always be on the summit.

Regular Drive Yourself rates and Vehicle Restrictions apply.

The State Park building will be open with limited food service on all three of these mornings.
