Had not been up in years, new Tram has a much smoother ride and is bigger. We enjoyed the views on the way up and back. Walked around, looked at exhibits and the labeled views, little history of the area.

Whether you’re hiking atop the Sandia or just taking the round trip to the peak, the tram ride is a big hit. When they get the peak restaurant finished (spring 2019?), it wil be even a better destination.

There is nothing like this tram ride. Spectacular views! I haven't tried out the new restaurant at the top yet, but will do so as soon as possible.

This was a fun way to get a great view of Albuquerque and the Sandia Mountains. It is $25 a person. The ride is exciting and it was neat to walk around the area.

A pleasant and smooth 15-minute ride up and down. Go up an hour before sunset and bring your camera. It can be considerably cooler and windy at the top.

Take the tram up in the day time and take one of several short hikes to enjoy the mountain air. Watch the sunset over the city before returning at night!

The Tram runs year round! It does close for two weeks in April and November for maintenance. Call the Tram office to get exact dates.
