About The Duquesne Incline, Pittsburgh

The Duquesne Incline, which is the most famous of its kind in Pittsburgh, is an inclined plane railroad, also known as a funicular. It is situated near Pittsburgh’s South Side neighbourhood, and scales the length of Mount Washington. It measures 800 feet, and stretches up to a height of 400 feet. It offers visitors an astounding view of Pittsburgh, and has been featured in a number of Hollywood movies apart from being a local favourite.

Originally steam powered, The Duquesne Incline was built to carry cargo up and down Mount Washington, before being opened to passengers. Though it was one of many inclines to be built in its day, it is to date one of only two surviving inclines in Pittsburgh that is still functioning. An observation deck was added at the top, which gives visitors a magnificent view of Pittsburgh's "Golden Triangle". It offers scenic views of the entire city from its cable car, which takes you both ways up and down the hill, and the very track in itself is a heritage monument and a tourist attraction.

  • The incline has been featured in Hollywood movies like ‘The Next Three Days’, ‘Flash Dance’ and ‘Lady Beware’.
  • In 1962, the incline was closed, but overwhelming support from the locals resulted in a fund raiser to reopen it, which bore fruit the following year.

There is a lot of history associated with the Duquesne Incline, and that’s only half the reason to pay it a visit. When in Pittsburgh, take one ride on the Incline to see the city like never before.

  • Great working piece of Pittsburgh history! Really enjoyed going back in time on this awesome machinery that’s over 130 years old! This wasn’t my first time there but it’s always a fun thing to do. Lots of cool things to see in the upper station old pictures and newspaper clippings to learn more about the city we love.

  • This is a pretty popular attraction site in Pittsburgh. It's one of those must visit places You can come ride the incline during the day and at night. Both offer stunning views of downtown Pittsburgh It's a great place to come with friends or family. There's an observation deck where you can take great pics of the view below

  • Definitely a must when visiting Pittsburgh. It gives great views of the city and you can park in the parking lot across the street from the incline for 24 hours all for $10. We parked here and walked around the city for the entire day. The round trip ride on the incline is $5 per adult. Make sure to check out the neighborhood Mt. Washington at the top of the incline.

  • Cheapest thrill in town. For pocket change you will get one of the best views of the city and get to experience some old time engineering at work.

  • Did not take the ride but it's definitely worth making the visit/driving up to the incline to see how it goes down and the workings of it. There's a ton of history waiting for visitors at this station and amazing views as well from this point. The rides aren't expensive but I believe exact change is needed.
