Take your camera and enjoy the day. Look for all the hidden animals. Look at the scenery and the mountain views. The over look of El Paso is precious.

Good entertainment for the afternoon. Not expensive and rare for Texas. There is a guide in each trip that will tell you cool facts about the tramway.

Avoid the Wyler tramway if it ia too windy because it may be closed. Otherwise it is a must go if you are visiting El Paso! Staff very kind and polite. Easy access by car. An Admission fee should be paid at entrance.

There is plenty of parking and it's a short walk to the ticket booth. There is also a trail that runs up the mountain from the parking lot if you are feeling ambitious.

Pretty busy on a holiday weekend, but no problem on a regular, non-holiday weekend. But best to go early anytime.
