Beautiful scenery in both directions. Nice trails at top and expect new restaurant when done will have beautiful views. Make sure to bring jackets; was a bit chilly and windy at the top.

This is the best view possible in Albuquerque and a really fun ride. Take a jacket because it can be much colder at the top.

I've ridden this a few times and always enjoyed it. It costs about twenty dollars, but it's scary a bit and gorgeous. At the top is a restaurant which is actually good food and service. There are hikes to take on the mountain top though...More

Took the cable car up to the peak. Wonderful view of Albuquerque below and beyond. Some day trippers also took opportunity to ski on the peak. It was easy to get to and provide excellent all around views. Must see for Albuquerque visit.

Ride the tram, hiking, visit the Four Seasons Visitors at the top of the mountain, shop at the gift shop at the lower terminal and eat at Sandiago's Grill, also at the lower terminal!

Ours was full so if it is going to be full, I would recommend you wait for the next car. If you are first in line, get to the window that faces the mountain.
