My husband and I were so glad that we ventured the Tramway the view was spectacular and the cost was only $8 for adults. Able to see 2 countries at the same time, one can spend as much time as you want at the top. Keep in mind they are only opened Friday -Sunday.

The views are really neat and the ride is pretty cool for kids to look out of the car as they go up and down the wire. The only draw back to this trip was it was very busy and long lines lack of shade while standing waiting to go up the mountian

My first time in El Paso, my mother and I took this Aerial Tramway. Can be a little nerve-wracking if you are afraid of heights, but worth it for the view at the top. Get in a little Tram (ski-lift type thing) that takes you all the way up to the top of the Franklin mountains. You can see the... More

I actually Love the View on this Tramway. And, for the Fitness buffs, it is an Awesome workout if you hike or walk your way up to the Tramway.

Awesome views of El Paso and Mexico 5000 feet up! Only costs $8/person. You ride an enclosed tram to the top of the mountain. The Rangers explain everything you're seeing and passing--very informative and gave great info on surrounding areas. At the top are great views of El Paso, Mexico and new Mexiciand even a gift

The tramway is a great family activity on a beautiful El Paso day. There is a great hike - relatively moderate if you give yourself two to three hours - that takes you from the viewing platform around the mountain peak to an old airplane bomber crash site. Well worth the time!

The line was an hour and a half long and when you get to the top, it's nothing you can't see from Scenic Drive. If I knew before what I do now, I would have skipped this.

It is a great view, but closed except Saturday and Sundays. The views, are breath taking. El Paso, Mexico. The wide open sky!!!! What an experience. You can see 3 states and Mexico. Rangers Peak is a 360 degree view.

Our trip to El Paso from Dallas area was made even better by a trip to this tramway. There was a lengthy line on Saturday of Memorial weekend; however, it went relatively fast chatting with others in line. The beautiful sunny weather was quite a treat in this "Monsoon Spring" we are having this year. The staff were all very... More
