“Awesome View of Southwest Desert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

When You visit El Paso, Wyler Aerial Tramway is one of the places you must see! Take the Tram (gondola cars) up to the mountain top on the Franklin Mountains. You can see Juarez and El Paso (both east and west sides). On a clear day you can see White Sands (to the north) in the far distance. Great place to see the entire El Paso community.

“An amazing view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

Awesome view from the top. Should be on your must-see list for El Paso. The wait can be a bit long since each tram can only take 6 passengers at a time so allow plenty of time. We were fortunate since it was just my wife and I and we able to avoid the wait because there were groups of 3 and 4 in front of us. You may want to take a jacket because of the change of elevation and the winds at the top.

“Meh. Scenic drive would be better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

We wanted to take the Scenic Drive but it was closed to traffic on a Sunday so we took the Tram. $8 for a 4 min. ride to a concrete platform enclosed by wire fence. Good views but cold and very windy. Can't walk around on top of Mt. Take the Rim Road for good views free of charge and continue onto Scenic Drive if it is open.
