The tram ride is great fun, even for someone like me who has a slight fear of heights. The view from the top is spectacular, so don't forget your camera. There are several easy to moderate trails leading to viewpoints. The restaurant at the top is good, and there are plenty of squirrels to help you finish your lunch.

The views from the tram are well worth any fear you may have of riding. Total trip is about 13 minutes, but feels more like 5-6. Food and hiking await you at the top. And, lots of fat hungry squirrels!

We have taken the this tram several times but did not actually do so this trip. I just wanted to encourage anyone who has not done so and is in the area to take the ride. We did check on fees this trip however and it was $28 for an adult $25 for a senior.

The tram rises 4000 feet, taking you to a plateau where the views are spectacular. Trails going from the tram station in nearly all directions. My wife does not care for trams, but braved it, and had no regrets what-so-ever. she loved the view and the wild life we discovered.

The ride of 3700 feet upwards in the four-seater gondolas may not be for those with a fear of heights, but the views of Wallowa Lake and the surrounding mountains in Oregon's Eagle Cap Wilderness and over to the Seven Devils in Idaho are stunning! There are 2½ miles of dirt trail at the top, populated by inquisitive and tame... More

I have always wanted to visit the Wallowa's. Finally. We have a great ride to the top. Took a little hike and my daughter fed to squirrels and chipmunks. Just beautiful. You gotta go.

A little expensive, but worth it. Takes you to 8k feet and you can hike and there is great views of the mountains.

Fun way to visit the area and do a little hiking. The views up the mountain and on the trails was enjoyable and easy for all ages. Flowers, animals, trees and scenic views were abundant.

Get a bird's eye view of Joseph. Fun ride in the cable car. Great food at cafe, but service was very slow which kept us from exploring as much as we wanted. Waitress was helpful. Musicians from New Orleans were a fun treat.

We thought perhaps this tram would take us up to where you could see in the distance. But no - this is one heck of a trip up to the distance mountain top, where trails offer tremendous views in every direction
