The ride on this aerial tramway is great, and the park on top has easy hikes with great views. I would return any day!

We took the tram at 10am. All the reviews we read suggested dressing warm. We took the risk of going in our shorts and t shirt and we are glad we did. It was so nice and warm at the top. The views were incredible,...More

Great views going up and down the tram, and at the top. Nice hiking area at the summit, although the trails are very poorly marked so don't venture too far off into the forest. I can't say don't venture too far off the beaten path,...More

When visiting Palm Springs the Aerial Tramway is more fun than you've had since you were a kid! ---- The drive is just a few miles northwest of Palm Springs and the ten minute ride up to 8,516 feet is spectacular. The tramway car actually...More

This isn’t cheap, but the ride up the mountain is brilliant and the environment at the summit is such a surprise and contrast to the desert below. It’s beautiful and views are spectacular. Pity though that given the cost of an adult ticket ($25.95) they...More

This is a must on your Palm Springs visit. There's a major temp change at the top so be sure to dress appropriately.

First, everyone said it would be 30 degrees cooler at 8500'. Nope, it was 40+ degrees cooler. We went from high 70's to mid-30's. So be prepared. The gondolas hold around 15 people but there were good views for most of us. The gondolas rotate...More

Fantastic trip up the mountain. The views were incredible. The ride up, as well as down, was a little upsetting for one person in our group (afraid of heights), but was quite breathtaking for the rest of us. I would recommend taking the tram first...More
