Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway

The Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway is an 80-passenger tram that takes visitors to the 4,080-foot summit at the top of Cannon Mountain. It’s the highest lift-accessed point in all of New Hampshire, and was the first aerial tramway operating in the United States. It’s been taking visitors on this scenic journey since 1938. The ride only takes 8 minutes, but delivers you to an incredible vantage point on top of the mountain, from which you can see not only New Hampshire below you, but parts of  Maine, Vermont, New York and Canada as well. There are also walking paths, a 360 observation deck, and a cafe at the top, so you can really sit and take in the views.

You don’t have to ride the Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway both directions.  Hikers are welcome to take the challenging trek to the top. After you’ve recovered from the journey, a one way ticket will get you a scenic ride back down the mountain.

Access to the Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway is via the popular Franconia Notch State Park. Once you’ve come down from the top of the mountain, or maybe before you go depending on the time of day, you’ll want to take your time exploring the many natural wonders of this extraordinary park. The Flume Gorge, which stretches 800 narrow feet at the base of Mount Liberty, is one of the most popular attractions in the area. You can either walk through just the gorge itself, or take a 2-mile loop trail. The park is also home to Echo Lake, where you can enjoy swimming, fishing, boating and canoe and paddle boat rentals

Once you’ve exhausted yourself, the luxurious accommodations at the Sugar Hill Inn will be waiting for you.  Book a room at our New Hampshire Bed and Breakfast today.
