We rode yesterday, courtesy of my sister, who planned it for my birthday. Medical complications required two postponements but it finally went down.

The cog railroad website is here.
The approach to the terminal and the parking can be daunting.
I’ve driven to the top many times but not in recent years. The road is now paved all the way. It is closed in the winter but the cog railroad now runs year around excepting Thanksgiving and Christmas.
