Was a little nervous of the tram ride, but it was pleasant. I chose to look at the mountain going up and down, which helped ease my anxiety. That being said, it was worth it! Aside from the amazing views, the smell of the pines, the large boulder rocks and pretty meadows, reminded me of Mammoth. I would love to go back when there is snow!

Had a great day on the mountain. It is a must when visiting Palm Springs. I suggest wearing sneakers or good shoes to climb in.

We spent most of the day visiting the once we had taken the tram to the mountain station. There are some fantastic views down to Palm Springs and the desert from the mountain station. We also to one of the trails and spent over two hours walking to each of the view points. There is also a great restaurant on the mountain station. We had a good meal with first class service.

Absolutley loved this trip. The views are amazing! The cable car slowly rotates twice during the ascent and decent, so there is no best place to stand as you get to see all the view. Handy to know that if you go after 4pm the price is reduced.
