Sulphur Mountain Gondola

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by s2artr on July 15, 2004

We took the gondola to the top of Sulphur Mountain on July 7, 2004. The day was mostly cloudy with light rain showers. The visability was poor. The facility on top the gondola contains two restaurants, a snack bar and a gift shop. There is also an outside observation area with picnic tables, but onour visit, it was cold and wet. I took the trail to the summit of Sulphur Mountain. The trail is a boardwalk with many flights of steps in a switch back pattern, perhaps 1/3 to 1/2 mile. On the summit there is a cosmic ray observatory. To my surprise, it was snowing heavily when I reached the summit. Be sure to dress warmly in layers at any time of year.
