  • Worth a ride in this cable car to take in the views of the White Mountains from the top. Pathway that takes you to a look out station. Worth getting there first thing in the morning to avoid the queue...  more »

  • This place is probably the best summer place to go to. Cheap tram rides that give you priceless views, hiking trails that extend for miles, a natural lake that ALWAYS stays cold year round, ( for the hot summer days ), a base area that's never crowded, all located next to one of the most beautiful towns of New Hampshire. If you are looking for a quick weekend getaway, make this your #1 location.
  • it takes about 6 min on the tramway to get above the mountain. There is a 1500 ft trail on top of the mountain showing great views of lafayette mountain, echo lake and great fall colors in late sept and oct. There is also simple 500ft walk to observatory where you get great views.. There is also a cafe and restrooms @ mountain top. You have an option to go one way (up or down) if you are in to hikings..
  • After a horrible experience on the Mt. Washington Cog Railway, I was headed home feeling sad. I took a chance and pulled off at the Cannon Mountain Tram. I am SO GLAD I did!! A lovely and inexpensive ride to the top of the mountain. Very smooth and fantastic views. It was a bit late in the day, so I couldn't stay long…but did the quarter mile Ridge Trail (twice). I noticed there were other trails as well. Will skip the Cog and arrive earlier next time to explore the trail system. Was great to walk around and it was just beautiful. Thanks!!
  • The summit of Cannon offers some easy hiking for families and the Tram is a fun way to get to the top for kids.
  • Well worth the visit! Breathtakingly gorgeous views, great trails and even a place to sit and have a drink or bite to eat before heading back down.
