Great scenery! From the drive up to the Ski area to the top & back. 11,510 ft is amazing! Well worth the 1hr spent waiting in line. Met some fun folks while waiting in line & that made the time pass quickly. Volunteer Rangers at the top were friendly & full of information. Highly recommend!

Purchased the groupon for the chairlift and absolutely LOVED it! Definitely not for anyone with a fear of heights! The views not only on the chairlift itself but at the top and bottom of it were absolutely amazing! Definitely recommend trying this at least once!

We took the chair lift ride during the summer after visiting Flagstaff over Memorial Day weekend. The best time to get there is the minute they open! When we finished chair lift ride (it lasts about an hour), the line for the lift was insanely long and we were happy we'd shown up early. The view is beautiful and the... More

Excellent summer fun, and worth the approx 30 ride to the top for the views. You dwarf everything around you from the top of there! Ride was $15 each adult, and free for those over 70. Think it was cheaper, or free for children up to a certain age too. My parents made the most of their free pass to... More

Take the chairlift up to 11,500 feet and try to breath LOL. Great for experiencing the altitude. This is where you can access the Kachina Trail Mt Humpherys Trail and the Great Arizona Trail which travels the whole state of Arizona from Mexico border to Utah. Great trail to hike in segments unless you want to do the whole 800... More

Close to town, visitor centre and chairlift to the top. Spectacular views and the staff at the top were chatty pointing out places of interest.

When traveling during the summer, get there early and ride the chairlift to the top. Beautiful views of northern Arizona and you can see the North Rim of the Grand Canyon on a clear day. Take good hiking shoes and hike around the top. Take a light jacket as temperatures vary quite a bit once you're at the top of... More

At $15 each, this was good value considering it's a good 20 minute cable car ride up to the top (and then back). The views are excellent and even on the slightly overcast day we visited, you could see the 50 or so miles across to the Grand Canyon. Well worth it for the panoramic view! There were thunder storms... More
