“gain a bird's-eye view of Estes Park”

Gain a bird's-eye view of Estes Park without having to hike! The Estes Park Aerial Tram safely whisks you above the treetops to the summit of Prospect Mountain. Operating daily from the end of May to early September, the tram is one of the few European-style cable cars operating in the United States. Instead of using towers to support the wires, the tram, built and designed by Robert Heron, travels across a free span of wires strung between top and bottom stations. Since 1955, it has carried more than 3 million people to the summit, where riders spend as much time as they wish observing and photographing the gorgeous panoramas, hiking family-friendly trails, or sometimes even getting married!

A short, expensive trip to an unremarkable, trash strewn hilltop. If you go into the park and up Trail Ridge Road, you will see infinitely better views. The ride is mildly entertaining as long as no one in your group gets claustrophobic, but not at all worth the wait. Absolutely not worth doing.

by the pictures I posted, it should already should say alot. The view was worth it and the tramway was a thrilling experience. Especially for those who have fear of heights. Once you get to the top you get to overlook the beautiful small town and the surroundings of the giant rocky mountains! They also have a small shop at the top where you can get souvenirs and food! :) It was pretty good from my experience!

One of the Best places to get some coffee and snacks. You can walk the trails, feed the chipmunks and get some awesome views of the mountains. It's a must stop.
