Easy ride up the mountain, great views. We rode the gondola up, hiked a meadow path and then took the gondola back down again. You can hike down the mountain. Bring your own food and drink.

This time of year the gondolas are operating as ski lifts. They only do the scenic rides in the off season. Check their website for dates.
