I loved this place. I flew into El Paso on a Sunday morning and by early afternoon I was on top of the mountain via the tramway. Went for a short hike around the mountain, wished I had more time spend the entire day hiking on the mountain. The only drawback is the limited days and hours of operation.

Very pleasant visit. We actually got through the mountain and got down on the tramway. Have done both but you should definitely try the hike if you have the time. There is a trail for this purpose.

The view is breathtaking and an experience the whole family will enjoy. The Rangers are well informed. Don't forget to stop in the gift shop.

360 degrees of beautiful. Got to the half way point and saw deer! Holy cow who knew there where deer! You can see all 3 states up there and the tower has benches so you can hang out in pure peace.

Must see if you are in the El Paso area, it does not cost you much, I think about 10 dollars.Of course, do not go up there when it is sizzling hot.

Breathtaking view, great thing to do when you only have a couple of hours to spare and want to see 2 countries at once.

It was very hot the day we were there, but once you got to the top of the mountain it was cool and spectacular! All three employees we encountered were very informative and answered all our questions.

a fun little thrill for the young niece and the son. To see ELP during the day from the top of the tram was a fun time.

We enjoyed our trip up the tram, the ride is only 4 minutes long with amazing views of El Paso and Juarez. We went on the tram before noon, and it was not crowded at all, we were able to move freely around the top without crowds. It is also fully fenced on all sides, so we felt comfortable letting...

Needed something to do for the afternoon. We found this and said why not! The driver there was tough as it was through alot of aide streets. Once heading up the drove the scenery starts to change and it is neat. The tram ride to the top is pretty cool and doesn't take very long. Once uo top you can... More
