Tram Village

Aerial Tramway

Soar to New Heights

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!

2021 Operations:

Open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., May 29 through September 6.

Adult tickets are $16; Seniors (60+) tickets are $14;  Kids(6-11) tickets are $10; Tickets for kids 5 & under are FREE! (Group rates available for groups of 20 or more.)


The Estes Park Tram is located southwest of the downtown area at 420 East Riverside Dr., Estes Park, CO.
