Perfect place to hike, enjoy the mountain views, breath fresh air, have a snack or coffee and "feed the chipmunks"... there were not many chipmunks around and they do not eat your peanuts anymore, seems like they had plenty to eat. Pictures taken up there are awesome and we really enjoyed exploring around! Going up was good and coming down... More

When we bring family for a reunion which we do nearly every summer, they always want to ride the tram to the top. Great views, photo spot

I loved the aerial tramway. My mom was afraid of the cars but loved the top once we got there. Feeding the chipmunks was really fun!

This tram ride was a great way to get up to the top for the great views. A little pricey but it was worth it for a one time adventure.

A little pricey but very fun! The ride is on the edge of the east side of town and takes you up the hill to a nice overlook of the town and surrounding countryside. At the top, is a quaint cafe and gift shop. You can purchase chipmunk food to feed them. Due to tourists, the chipmunks are very docile... More

This is the classic tram in Estes Park. A great way to spend a morning getting up high and seeing the views. Take some peanuts to feed the chipmunks if you have young children.

Afraid of heights, I couldn't resist & have no regrets. A great place to hike at the top on trails/a dirt road which we took to the summit up near a cell phone tower. Stunning views for miles. Highly recommend as an activity.

We have not been able to ride the tram as they are always closed in October when we travel there. With the large number of folks there in mid October, it seems that they would have plenty of customers.

Scared of heights but I went anyway. On Bucket list. This was very rewarding at the top. Feeding the chipmunks was the highlight for me. The views were spectacular and I will never forget them.
