I was traveling on business so I didn't spend a whole lot of time prior to going to see what I could do. I loved the aerial tramway. The parking was great and a shuttle service is available to pick you up in a timely matter. It was a great ride up and down, just wish it was clearer so... More

I went with my husband and one year old baby, in a baby carrier. We're glad we didn't bring strollers, it would've been too bulky for the tram ride. The tram got a bit crowded on the way down during evening time since they didn't run as frequent as they do during the daytime. The ride was fun, because it... More

THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY The GOOD: very organized parking and shuttle services, both free. Very convenient and timely. The views from the top of the tram were amazing. 114 degrees on the valley floor but 76 degrees on the top mid-day. Bring a sweater if you stay until after sundown. The BAD: the queuing area to ride... More

This is a must do activity for people interested in the out of doors! Be ready for some good hiking and cooler temps at the top.

Everyone must try this at least once. The aerial tramway up to the top of the mountain is fun. The floor of the car revolves and makes two complete revolutions on the way up and way down. So everyone get a full panoramic view of the scenery. Take a sweater because it's cool at the top and the views are... More

Loved this trip up the mountain. We went up just before sunset. Not only were we able to get a discounted ticket, we practically had the car to ourselves on the trip up. We just had enough time to take in the views from the lookout and do one of the small nature walks before it got too dark. The... More

Unique experience for the climb, the views and some fresh air far from scorching hot Palm Springs. Good pictures and an opportunity for a nice trek in the park.

I am not a massive fan of cable cars, but this took my breath away. The sheer size and engineering to construct this was amazing. The views from the top were superb and the hour or so that we walked around the nature trail made us seem like we were in a different planet from the heat and activity several... More
