Palm Springs Aerial Tramway
From US$ 23.95 per person
- Enjoy spectacular views as you ride from the desert floor to a pristine alpine forest
- Take a hike on the 54 miles (87 kilometers) of hiking trails
- Go snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in the winter if the weather permits it
- Dine at the top of the tramway and take advantage of shopping opportunities at the gift shops
The 2.5 mile (4 kilometer) ride from the Valley Station (elevation 2,643 feet, or 805 meters) to the Mountain Station (elevation 8,516 feet, or 2,596 meters) transports you from the warm desert sands to cool mountain air, with temperatures that are generally 30-degrees cooler than on the ground.
The tramway is the threshold of the 14,000-acre Mt. San Jacinto State Park, a natural place with some of the last pristine wilderness in Southern California. In the winter, try cross-county skiing or snowshoeing. Rental equipment is available at the Adventure Cether, snow conditions permitting. During the summer months, camping, guided nature walks, and 54 miles (87 kilometers) of hiking are available.
There are 2 dining options at the Mountain Station: Peaks Restaurant offers upscale contemporary cuisine with a spectacular view of the desert floor, and Pines Cafe is a cafeteria-style restaurant that offers a casual dining experience.
Also at the top are gift shops, a Natural History Museum, and 2 documentary-style movies on the history of the tramway and the Mt. San Jacinto State Park.

This was a spectacular rid, well-run and safe. The park at the top is really special and you should go as early as you can and stay as long as you can or even camp overnight. I'm looking forward to going back in the winter for snowshoeing or skiing on the top of the San Jacintos! Bring your own food, if you can, but there is a cafeteria that is ok. Good fries.
Amazing views on way up, and nice nature trail with shade at the top. Great for children, and volunteer wardens really friendly especially with the children. Excellent organisation, took only a few minutes to redeem the voucher, and we were on the next tram up. His was the first time I had used GetYourGuide and I will definitely use them again (where I can save money)
Once in lifetime experience.
It was one of the best rides and yours I have ever been on!!
