Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway
Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway information
This tram shoots up the side of Cannon Mountain, offering a breathtaking view of Franconia Notch. In 1938 the first passenger aerial tramway in North America was installed on this slope. It was replaced in 1980 by the current, larger cable car, capable of carrying 80 passengers up to the summit of Cannon Mountain – a 1-mile ride with 2022ft vertical gain – in less than 10 minutes. You can also hike up the mountain and take the tramway down (adult/child $13/10).
