Is the aerial tramway a must?

We are staying in Palm Desert and had planned on taking the tram tomorrow. However, we spent the day driving the Pines to Palms Scenic highway to Hemet, and then drove through Idyllwild to Banning. We saw so much amazing scenery and loved it. Now, I am not sure if the views from up above the tram will be much different than what we saw today. Any input?

Well, here is a large set of photos from the tram, and the top of Mt. San Jacinto from Easter Sunday of this year. (Special Sunrise service).

Hopefully that can help you decide.

The tram will afford you views of the valley. What you saw on your drive is entirely different.

Absolutely make the trip on the Tram. It's really an exciting experience, and a something to marvel.
