If you like looking at the cute little chipmunks, this is for you! This is where you can feed them by hand and they sell the food up there too! There is also a short easy hike up here too!

Most beautiful views of the park! If you're afraid or apprehensive of heights, this may not be for you. However, this is a photographers dream ✨🗻🚡✨

The Estes Park Aerial Tramway offers a great family friendly way to view the city and the amazing surrounding mountains from a unique perspective. For those in our group who are afraid of heights, the wait in line was more stressfull than the tram ride itself.

If you want a great view of town and mountains, you won't go wrong. There are only 2 cars, so loading can take awhile, but the gift shop and cafe on top mean you can time your return trip with little waiting. Feed the chipmunks and bring your camera.

The ride is a bit harrowing if you don't like heights, but only 5 minutes and 100% worth it! As most of the reviews mention, stop by the shop before heading away from the entrance area and buy some peanuts (or bring your own). Then spend a while making friends with woodland creatures, who are definitely not shy, and be... More

Loved our experience here - amazing views, great blended coffee and hungry little chipmunks. However, we lost our camera somewhere up top and since this was the last thing we did on our Estes Park trip, we're missing all of the photos from our 10th year anniversary trip! Oh well - the memories are still there, but if you should... More

Friendly staff, breath taking views, hungry little creatures at the top of the mountain that will eat peanuts right out of your hand! A great way to spend an hour or two. Go early if possible to avoid long lines and weather closures.

A great way to see the mountains. Cafeteria and gift shop up top. Don't forget to buy some peanuts and feed the squirrels out back! It can also get a little breezy/cold up top. So dress appropriately.
