This tram takes you to the top of the mountain. It offers 360 view of the entire area, simply breath taking, take the guided tour, the small plants and flowers are great.

The tramway in Wallowa is a fun ride with unbelievable views. At the top there is a restaurant and several hiking trails, both easy and a little more challenging. The views are seriously unbelievably beautiful. This is a good adventure for all ages and fitness levels.

A bit pricey but worth the trip. Nice views from the top, decent food at the restaurant, friendly staff both on the tram and in the restaurant. Many beautiful views

We really enjoyed our trip to the top of the mountain via the Tram. The scenery is fantastic. We hiked on several trails and worked up an appetite then enjoyed lunch at the restaurant at the top.

It takes about 13 minutes to ride to the top. It's so neat how high this tram takes you. There are at least six different dramatic views of the mountains and the valley, it's beautiful! Some parts of the mountains have snow, some lush green with pine trees, some bare, some rocky. You can see the valley for miles and... More

So much fun. Friendly staff. Tram to the top is a kitschy adventure. Hiking trails at the top were fabulous. Chipmunks were entertaining. We ended up hiking around for several hours, enjoying the views and the alpine flowers. This is a must do if you are in the area.

$29 round trip... A little too much. The view is great up there but not worthy for the price. But if you are here once in your life time. Okay... I'll pay for it.

The gondola was expensive, but I knew this going into it. I rode it in 1994 for about $12.00, yesterday it was $29. If it was just up and back, it would be way too expensive, but there are so many beautiful trails and viewpoints, once you get to the top. There is also a very inexpensive place to eat... More

I have been on a lot of trams, including the one out of Palm Springs that goes up to the San Ysidro mts. in California. This is just as great.
