After biking the GAP trail from DC to Pittsburgh, I had a day to do some sightseeing. I rode from my hotel (Hyatt-South side) to the Duquesne Incline. It was not too crowded so I got right on (hint, buy a roundtrip ticket). It's a...More

The incline is a Pittsburgh treasure and a must for out of town visitors. You get an unparalleled view of the City and also learn about the history of the funicular.

Good visit with my daughter and her fiance, relatively inexpensive, need to modernize the ticket issuing process though. And the parking lot was pretty sad with potholes.

Loved this great example of an early funicular railway. Reminded me of the Lynton to Lynmouth railway here in Devon, UK. Very interesting chat with the guy who maintains the winding gear. Amazing views from the top. Recommended.

If you've got friends visiting from out of town (especially if they have kids), the incline is a fun way to get up and down Mt. Washington. Kids always get a kick out of the slanted tracks and cars.

There are a lot of stairs to get to the incline car. The car itself will accommodate a small stroller.
