Mount Washington is home to a unique alpine tundra zone that represents less than 0.07% of the New Hampshire landscape. The views are reminiscent of bigger mountain ranges, the alpine flowers are stunning, and the weather is world famous.
This mountain environment is accessible to all via trails, a road, and a train. People from all walks of life have felt the wonder of being on the highest mountain in the Northeast. The experience is popular and traffic is increasing, putting pressure on this sensitive area.
Mount Washington is now further threatened by the Mount Washington Cog Railway's proposal to build a 25,000 square foot luxury lodge in the alpine tundra zone. Your help is needed to stop this proposal!
