The Tram and Visitor Center at the top give you one of the best views in all of Albuquerque. You can see from south of Albuquerque to Los Alamos and Santa Fe. This is a must for anyone visiting Albuquerque.

Didn’t spend long at the top, just wandered about taking in the views whilst the tramway got ready to go back done. Great views though.

Spectacular views from the top but exceptionally long wait time. We waited nearly an hour but that was probably due to the holidays. Well worth the wait though.
