The Mount Washington Observatory will offer guided tours Sept. 13 and 20 exploring the northeast’s tallest peak after traveling America’s steepest railroad tracks on the historic Cog Railway.

The tour will also include a behind-the-scenes look at the observatory’s famed mountaintop weather station, informal educational sessions, as well as plenty of photo opportunities.

Trips begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Marshfield Station, and ends at the base at 5 p.m. Cost is $155 for observatory members and $175 for non-members, which includes a round-trip ticket on the Cog Railway.

Reservations are required and can be made online or by calling 603-356-2137, ext. 225.
