It’s practically impossible to visit the Mount Washington Valley without being blown away by the size and beauty of Mount Washington. At 6,822 feet, its peak is the highest point in the Northeast. And if you want to get to know this behemoth for yourself, there are a few different ways to do so. You can hike one of the remarkably rigorous trails to the summit. Or you can drive the famous Auto Road. Just make sure you travel with all the right gear. Because while the views are unforgettable, the weather can be pretty unforgiving.
