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

Friendly staff but multi day passes are most economical. I witnessed several people walk away when they saw the $28 ticket price for one day.

At first I thought the price was a bit steep ($75 for 3 people) but the view was amazing. The 2.5 mile loop around the summit was very nice, and overall the experience made up for the price.

The tram is an excellent way to get a sneak preview of the high country without a steep trail. It has a beautiful view from the top and you can enjoy light refreshments on the terrace. The price is a little steep but it is definitely worth the visit if you are with folks that are hiking restricted. Take your... More

The Wallowa Lake Tramway, gives one the most value for seeing the views from up on top of Mt. Howard. The tram is very quiet so you enjoy the nature on the ride up and down. The people were very friendly and accommodating. The trails and overlooks were fantastic. The food at the Summit Grill is excellent and very reasonably... More

It was overcast and 45 degrees June 15 when we arrived. We took the tram 1.3 miles up to the top of Mt. Howard. About 2/3 of the way up, the mountain was totally obscured by the clouds. After a short while we broke through the clouds and landed at the lodge on top. It was partly sunny but spitting... More

My husband and I felt the experience was well worth the price. The staff was friendly and helpful. The trails were mostly clear of snow. Spent a lot of time taking in the views and photographing. I felt as though I was on top of the world. Amazing!

My Family and I just recently visited the Wallowa Lake Tramway on Memorial Day Weekend. Sadly as we reached the Summit, We went to the Summit Grill for lunch. It was quite packed in there but we did manage to get a table after a 15 minute wait. The place seemed understaffed, not quite ready for that large crowd, as... More
