I had friends from out of town visiting and they wanted to go up on the mountain. The rite up and down was fantastic. It was disappointing that we couldn’t leave the platform on the top because of the fire restrictions.

Sorry you were not able to hike around after riding the Tram! After some great monsoon rain, the Forest Service has lifted the fire restrictions!
