Registration deadline extended to July 10.
Mt. Washington Carriage Road Weekend will be a look back at a time when horses were the only means of transportation up the, then, Mt. Washington Carriage Road. Mt. Washington Carriage Road Weekend is a special event catering to horse owners and enthusiasts that will feature horseback, wagon and carriage rides at the base of Mt. Washington on Saturday and Sunday as well as horse drawn carriages and riders on horseback climbing the Mt. Washington Auto Road on Sunday.
This is a fabulous once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take your horse or horse drawn wagon to the summit of the highest peak in the Northeast! Come and relive the old days when horses ruled the Carriage Road. Our 12 + mile carriage road trail system at the base of the mountain known as Great Glen Trails will also be open for the first time to horses and wagons and closed to all other wheeled vehicles. Even if you do not want to attempt the mountain climb on Sunday, join us on this spectacular trail system during both weekend days.
Horse drawn wagon rides will be available to the public on the trails at the base of the mountain on Sunday from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm.
In recognition of this special day, the Mt Washington Auto Road will be closed to all motorized vehicles on Sunday, July 17.
