If you like hiking, if you like outdoor activities, if you are looking for a date theme, if you want to enjoy nature, if you enjoy beautiful vistas with or without the hiking, you have a "snap shot" opportunity to experience hiking up a mountain quickly on the last Sunday I believe of each month and can go down the...

Interesting although a little crowded. I was new in town and helped me locate myself in the map in relation to Juarez and New Mexico.

We went on Mother's Day and had a great time! The ride only takes about 5 min but you get a good view. It was a little cloudy on the afternoon we went so we could only see 50 miles. The ranger said you can see 130 miles on a clear day. They did say they shut down when the... More

This is a must see for locals and tourists. And if you are geologist, or if you're an aspiring geologist you will be in heaven. From here you can see the entire region and well into Mexico. On the tram heading up you will see a 500,000,000 year-old geologic non conformity .The top you will meet locals have been in... More

I hadn't been up the Tramway since I was a kid (a very long time ago) and we decided to take an out-of-town guest for a unique look at the entire region. What a wonderful experience it was. Well worth the $8 fee/person. The lines can get long so take water and an umbrella/sunhat/sunscreen.

Sadly it was too windy the day we went up there to ride the tram. Totally suggesting calling first. With that aside, just the ride up there and the view from the parking are was amazing! Wished we were able to go back up for the ride, but only here for a couple of days. It was tough to rate,... More

You'll see three states Texas, New Mexico and the state of Chihuahua, Mexico in any direction. Take a light jacket, even in summer time.

Attraction was only open on the weekend and closes with the smallest wind. Never was able to use it :-(

The Wyler Aerial Tram is a beautiful way to see the El Paso area. If you go on the weekend, try to go early or you will wait in line for quite a while, but once you get on the tram, the view is spectacular. Great activity for families!
