Mount Washington Auto Road, Gorham NH

Status & Weather 



Current Road Status

The Mt Washington Auto Road is currently closed. Plans are to reopen each day this week 9am-4pm (weather permitting) to TREE LINE, 4.5 miles up at 4200’ for all regularly allowed vehicles, including motorcycles. The base lodge and Guided Tours will be available beginning Memorial Day weekend. Please note that because of the famously changable weather, along with limited parking, we DO NOT allow hiking up beyond the treeline turn around point. 


We plan to open to the summit for passenger vehicles as soon as possible, currently we're projecting that to be Mid May.  To learn more about our spring road clearing efforts >>
