If you are visiting the city, a ride on the incline is a must stop. Historic vertical trolley cars with old world woodworking, the view, and reliving what was many people’s daily commute up and down the mountainside back in the day.

I love the wood interior of the cars. The view is amazing. Never do this on a day of a baseball or football game, the lines are crazy long. Worth doing, walk around Mt. Washington at the top. The views up there are wow wow...More

We rode the incline to the top of Mt Washington to eat at a restaurant. Originally opened in 1877 and uses the old wooden cars. $2.50 for a one way ride. This is not an amusement ride, just public transportation. Built to transport passengers and...More

It is so beautiful at night to see the whole city lit up. You can see everything from the top of the incline. A must see when visiting. Very few places have this available, so unique

It is a steep almost 45 degrees rail mounted trolley. The incline is of historical importance with a self guided tour of the machine room and plenty of pictures of Pittsburg over the years of its development.

One of a kind trolley which is rail mounted and travels the distance at almost 45 def incline. And what heritage... those with technical mind must take a self study tour of the old machine room which is supported by explanatory posters. And finally it...More

Do plan this into your trip. We loved overlooking the city as we rode up - enjoyed the restaurants above - and then back down. Service was excellent; history was great fun. Do it!

At the top of the incline are several excellent restaurants. I like the smaller ones best, because they are intimate and if without a reservation, you might be able to still have a view without a window seat.
