This is one of the world's largest rotating tram cars and it will take you two-and-one-half miles to a pristine wilderness above Palm Springs. Only about 2 hours from Los Angeles, Palm Springs is famous for hot, sunny days and swimming pools but the mountains around Palm Springs are breathtaking so a young electrical enineer named Francis F. Crocker decided to "go up there where it's nice and cool".

He began his project in 1935 while he was on a trip to Banning, California, with newspaper publisher Carl Barkow. In the heat of the day he mopped his brow and looked at the snow covered peak of Mt. San Jacinto. Over 10,000 feet high, he imagined that he was not the only one would like to be on top of that mountain! The Tramway or Gondola is a once in a lifetime adventure!

So "Crocker's Folly" was born and now you can enjoy fantastic views and the cool temperatures of Mt. San Jacinto!

 

 

The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway—the world’s largest rotating tram car or gondola - travels over 2 1/2 miles along the breathtaking cliffs of Chino Canyon, transporting riders to the pristine wilderness of the Mt. San Jacinto State Park.

During your approximately ten-minute journey, the cable cars rotate slowly, offering picturesque and spectacular vistas of the valley floor below. Once you reach the Mountain Station—elevation 8,516 feet—enjoy two restaurants, observation decks, natural history museum, two documentary theaters, gift shop and over 50 miles of hiking trails.


Palm Springs is only 2 hours from Los Angeles so if you're planning a day trip or LA is next on your itinerary, check out Universal Hollywood Studios!
