What is there to do at
Palm Springs Aerial Tramway?
At the Mountain Station enjoy viewpoints, cocktail lounge, gift shop, Natural History exhibit, and two documentary style movies about the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway and the Mount San Jacinto State Park. Dine at one of the two restaurants– Peaks Restaurant offers fine dining, while the Pines Restaurant offers an affordable self-serve alternative.
During the winter, the top of the Tramway is transformed into a pristine snow covered playground. Visitors can try their hand at cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. Rental equipment is available at the Adventure Center, which is open from mid-November until mid-April (snow conditions permitting). For the more adventurous and well-experienced, snow camping offers a special way to spend a weekend or plunge into a good old-fashioned snowball fight.
During the summer months, the mountains offer more than 54 miles of hiking trails, camping, and guided nature walks. Trails range from the awe-inspiring 5.5-mile trek to the peak of San Jacinto, at 10,834 it is the second tallest mountain in southern California, to the one-mile nature walk through picturesque Long Valley, located just behind the Mountain Station. Primitive campsites are located throughout the State Park. Wilderness permits are required for any hiking or backpacking and may be obtained from the Ranger Station located in Long Valley.
