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

This is well worth the $25.00 to do. We were there when it still had snow on top so we couldn't walk around much. But the scenery is spectacular!

Took my sons on a father/sons camping trip, and this was one of the highlights! Beautiful ride on the tram to the top where we did a little hiking. Lots of photo opportunities with gorgeous scenery. We went in late July and the weather was great. Eagle Cap and others are absolutely fantastic. Lots of friendly chipmunks and squirrels will... More

I prob. shouldn't rate it down due to my own bad timing but "average" was how I honestly felt about it. Anyway, I just took it a few days ago and felt that it was money not well spent. The ride itself is fantastic, but if you want to walk on trails early June is too early. There are still... More

Every time I have gone up the tram has been exciting, and everytime I stand at the top and stare over the Eagle Cap Wilderness it is breathtaking. Take the tram if you have not yet done it!
