Things To Do
Half the fun of visiting the only public Tram in Texas is driving the paved road that snakes up the east side of the Franklin Mountains. After purchasing your ticket at the tramway station, the Swiss-made gondola will take you on a remarkable four- minute ride through a vast canyon that ranges to a depth of 240 feet. During your journey, park rangers describe the various cacti and rock formation along the way. As the ride comes to an end, the spectacular 7,000 square mile view that encompasses three states and two nations proves to be truly breathtaking. View finders, restrooms and a gift shop are all available at Ranger Peak.
