An all-ages activity, well-worth the trip! Side bonus: if you like geology, you will enjoy the wonderful display at the peak (quartz-sericite-chlorite-albite schist - early Cambrian age). Be sure and look for the 2 USGS markers..

It's a nice ride to the top, kids will enjoy. At the top there is several trails, and a nice rock to climb. Weather is just s little more colder. There is a deli at the top.

Took the tram to the top on a somewhat overcast day. It wasn't that crowded which was great. The ride up is slow and steady and gives you a chance to take in the view and take pictures if you want to. Once to the...More
