Any top tips?
The trip is 3 1/2 hours round trip, so be sure to make sure you have time for the trip! It is generally 30 degrees cooler on the Summit so dress accordingly! Bring water to drink on the train so the altitude doesn't effect you too much...but be careful, there are no restrooms on the train.
The Cog Wheel Cafe is located near the loading gates on the platform. They offer all sorts of delicious foods including hamburgers, brats, thai chicken wraps, and even spiced nuts!
