Was nice to be able to hang out up top at our leisure and enjoy the panoramic view of the city below. Our daughter loved feeding the "herds" (literally) of chipmunks that live at the top waiting on folks to give them peanuts. ;-) Next time we plan to take a small backpack and enjoy a lunch at one of...

Great views, and incredible experience going up. Price is a little steep but well worth it. Feeding chipmunks is a highlight, but go early - they don't eat much after 11:00 am.

Trip was very quick to the top to the mountain. Viewing area is rather limited.

Take the kids along and while you enjoy the breath taking views, let them feed the chipmunks by hand.... A real crown pleaser.

The wait for the tram was minimal and the view was marvelous. The chipmonks at the top were friendly & tame - and they chowed down several scoops of peanuts. This is a short & sweet tourist activity for all ages (even teens!)

We went up as the last tram of the day with our kids ages 10 and 7. We are so glad we didn't miss this one!! The views were great and the kids loved feeding the chipmunks. Nice smooth ride; only about 8 minutes up.

Beautiful views from the top, worth the trip. Chipmunk feeding a bonus

Our group of 6, ages 3 - 67, arrived at about 10 AM and did not have to wait to go up the Tramway. The ride up was smooth and scenic and enjoyed by all. At the top my two children enjoyed climbing rocks, exploring trails, seeing the wildlife and, of course, feeding the chipmunks. We hiked the gravel road... More

Take the kids, you can feed the chipmunks and have a snack at the top. Stay as long as you like.

I recommend that you start your visit out with the tram ride. It lets you see the entire Estes Park area from above so you can get your bearings for exploring. If you find yourself hiking any of the peaks in RMNP, about halfway up you realize how much easier the tram is!
