This thing moves fast! And it spins (slowly, but it spins). Take the ride to the top. When I say fast, you travel to the top in like 10 minutes. If you are altitude sensitive (my wife is) you will feel the affects of this speedy travel to the top. The views are cool. Not much to do at the top but have a beer or glass of wine and then travel back down. It is a must do if you are in the area. Please follow us @ https://www.facebook.com/escapervist

Absolutely loved that tram ride! Once we were at the top we took a nice hike! There is still snow in May so make sure you have closed toed shoes. Beautiful views, great hiking, and great customer service!

They are not pet friendly. You can't even go on the trails with your dog.

This place is great. The revolving car lets you see all of the different views as you are going up and down the mountain. It only rotates like 2 1/2 times so it's pretty slow. At the top, there is great hiking and a nice little gift shop. It's also a little cooler up top.

There's hiking and dining at the top (make a reservation if you're planning on eating at Peaks Restaurant). It's like, $24 or something like that person, so it isn't cheap, but if you make the most of your time there it's well worth it. And even if you are afraid of heights, don't let that stop you from riding up the mountain-- it's really not that scary.
