Monongahela Incline

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by enizete on January 7, 2001

The Monogahela incline is one of two inclines still remaining in Pittsburgh and one of very few still around in the United States. Its location is quite a scenic view from Mt. Washington overlooking the City of Pittsburgh. Many famous pictures of this city are taken from the rails overlooking Mt. Washington. Many people whom reside on Mount Washington, use the incline to arrive at work in town. It truly is a great consideration being that some day, such fixtures like inclines will truly be a thing of the past.

The view of Pittsburgh as the car pulls itself up the mountain is really great. I love the view every time there. Once on top, depart the building attached to the top, and walk along the sidewalk to access the guardrails to view Pittsburgh. Parents hold onto the children. Not extremely dangerous,but not worth the risk. Prices to ride the incline are very cheap. It only costs one dollar each way. children (6-11 years old) and disabled only pay 50 cents each way.

Their hours of operation are Monday through Saturday 5:30 a.m. to 12:45 a.m. Sundays and Holidays 8:45 a.m. to Midnight

Several fine restaurants are located at the top of Mount Washington, after departing the incline. It is also a very romantic site at night.
