A must experience for the family. Nice tram ride to the top, go first thing in the day, can get very hot outside. Great views and Park docent was very informative as we traveled to the top. Hiking is an option, some easy trails too.

A great way to get a birds eye view of El Paso and Juarez. Unfortunately we didn't see any animals but the gondola ride was still amazing. There are some amazing trails to enhance your view. Just make sure you visit thurs-Sunday to ensure you can get in!

Always breathtaking, it's our "go to" place for out of town visitors. Wait can be long during peak hours, but worth it. The only drawback are the limited operating hours; Fri-Sat 12:00-7:00, Sun-major holidays 10:00-5:00. No fee to enter the park, tram is $8.00 for adults, $4.00 for kid 12 & under. Check the weather/call ahead as tram will close... More

This was a beautiful ride up and the view out over the area was stunning. There is a very small amount of space at the top and only a single unisex bathroom. The gift shop was limited but did have stuffed animals, tee-shirts, books and a few other souvenirs. The day we were there the park staff offered crafts for... More

After a long drive to see, there was a gate across the road stating it was closed. We were diappointed.

One of the good attractions in El Paso - I usually take out of town company to this place! You can see the land forever! Three states and two countries! Kids usually love the ride up and down! Make sure to check times and availability first as they sometimes close due to weather.

We have been here several times. We take friends and family when they visit. The rides up and down are short, so if you are afraid of riding it, the ride isn't long! Everyone on staff is extremely nice and knowledgable.

Great Views of El Paso. Fun tram ride up. If entertaining out of two guests I would highly recommend this attraction as a must. Good for Romantic Evenings. The best time of year to go is in the late fall because although it can get cold, you can watch a sunset up top and stay to see the stars come... More

Worth a visit to get a good sense of geography of the area. Took my son and his girlfriend to the top and enjoyed the view of Texas,New Mexico and Mexico.

If you have 1 hour or so of time and love vantage point view, then this is it. Driving up to the ticketing counter is easy. Tram journey to the peak is fast but smooth. The view on top is magnificient. Dont worry if you forget to bring any water or cap as there is a gift shop at the... More
