On a sunny weekend expect to spend up to 2 hours in a queue for the cable car (we waited 1.25 hrs on the way up, much less for the way down on a sunny Saturday.) Buying tickets in advance robs you of any flexibility,...More

When you get to the top, there is a machine in the cable car house where you can buy a one-way ticket down. The hike up takes about 2 hrs, so take plenty of water.
