Mount Washington Auto Road, Gorham NH

Status & Weather 



Current Road Status

The Mt. Washington Auto Road is currently OPEN to all regularly allowed passenger vehicles to the SUMMIT, EXCEPT Motorcycles.  Guided Tours will begin Saturday.

The Auto Road is currently CLOSED for motorcycles due to the early season condition of the gravel section at mid-mountain.  Later during the operating season, closure to motorcycles is most often due to high wind speeds above tree line, rain causing the one mile of gravel surface at mid-mountain to become soft or sand on the pavement following an icing event. 

Please call us for more information regarding our closure to motorcycles, (603) 466-3988.

PLEASE NOTE: Be aware that weather and road conditions can change quickly and this status report is updated frequently.
