Enjoy stunning views of the Coachella Valley with a trip up the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway

Take a Trip to the Top of Mount San Jacinto

Climb aboard the world's largest rotating trams as you embark on a ten-minute journey scaling the sheer cliffs of Chino Canyon, passing through several climate zones. Once you reach the top, diversions include hiking or guided nature walks if the weather is warmer, and cross-country skiing or snowshoeing during the winter. Lunch and dinner are served at the Peaks Restaurant and Pines Café, both offering breathtaking views. The first tram departs at 10 a.m. on weekdays, 8 a.m. weekends with the final descent at 9:45 p.m. Keep in mind that even when temps are baking down below, it can get nippy up on top of Mount San Jacinto.
