Looking for something to do while in Pittsburgh saw on trip advisor. Cost is 2.50 per person there are discounts for age groups but I do not remember what they are. You need exact change. It only takes a couple minutes get to the top. There is a wonder view of Pittsburgh there. Once their there is not much to... More

We drove to the top of the incline and parked across the street in a lot. First we enjoyed the observation deck at no cost when the sun was setting, then took the incline down, paid for both ways at that spot, then took the incline back up. At the top at that time, it was getting dark and we... More

This is a historic incline that offers a $2.75 roundtrip in a 3 hour window. Views of downtown are amazing, especially at night. There are several outlooks for the best views. Shiloh Street at the top has several good bars with decent views. Station Square at the bottom has shopping and dining options.

I wanted to go up to Mt. Washington on my most recent trip to Pittsburgh. Friends said to try the Incline. Sorry, I didn't know what the Incline might be. For those that have taken the trip, you know the feeling. You leave town and cross the Monongahala River. Signs point you to Mt. Washington, and to the Incline. Following... More

The Duquesne Incline is a must for everyone who visits or lives in Pittsburgh. I will never forget the first time my father took us up the incline and then we shared ice cream and looked down onto the three rivers.

Long line, long wait, not a whole lot of thrill. But that being said, why not take this incline up to see the top of Mt. Washington? I would do it the same way even though I only gave this a fair rating of three stars. If you are paying with credit card, and live in canada (so your credit... More

Parking 2 hours = $5 Ticket round trip for 4 = $20 View = priceless Who knew a simple trajectory of funicular railway would bring such pleasant surprise. It even pleased a hard to satisfy teenager.

Great historical ride up the Incline. Great view from up top of the city. Awesome historical photos of the area hanging inside the building up on top. Free guided tour of the gear room to see how these cars go up and down. If you go bring cash and small bills. They only take small bills. $2.50 for adults one... More

The incline is a unique experience for Pittsburgh. Great to catch for games but also great for the views. If you've never been to Pittsburgh you have to check out the incline--especially at night when the view of the city and the point are the best!
