The tram ride is just minutes long with a cafe and gift shop at the top. There is additional hiking areas at the top. We spent about an hour at the top taking pics and walking around.

It's beautiful up at the top! A must go for this area! A great place for families! They encourage you to feed the chipmunks with the peanuts they sell. It's a great time.

My teenager and I arrived at the tram around 1pm on a Saturday and there was an hour wait. It was a little nerve-wrecking going up, but the views were well worth it! It's a smooth ride, 8-10 people per tram, standing space only and...More

I didn't see any pets either. At the top, there are lots of chipmunks so I bet they don't allow animals because of that.
