, called Agiocochook
by some Native American tribes, is the highest peak in the Northeastern United States
at 6,288.2 ft (1,916.6 m) and the most prominent
mountain east of the Mississippi River.
The mountain is notorious for its erratic weather. On the afternoon of April 12, 1934, the Mount Washington Observatory
recorded a windspeed of 231 miles per hour (372 km/h) at the summit, the world record for most of the 20th century, and still a record for measured wind speeds not involved with a tropical cyclone
The mountain is located in the Presidential Range
of the White Mountains
, in the township of Sargent's Purchase, Coös County, New Hampshire
. While nearly the whole mountain is in the White Mountain National Forest
, an area of 60.3 acres (24.4 ha) surrounding and including the summit is occupied by Mount Washington State Park
The Mount Washington Cog Railway
ascends the western slope of the mountain, and the Mount Washington Auto Road
climbs to the summit from the east. The mountain is popular with hikers (the Appalachian Trail
crosses the summit). Other common activities include glider
flying, and annual cycle and running races such as the Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb
and Road Race
