We went when it was 95 degrees at the base but up top was only 55. Crisp, clean refreshing air welcomes you along with the quiet and calm that transcends the everyday life and whisks stress away. Take the 1.5 mile hike along the different...More

Depends on the season--often there are nights when the tram runs later because there are dinners scheduled at the restaurant at the top. However, you do NOT want to be caught on the trail in the dark and it gets dark early... More
