  • Cannon Mountain offers you a magnificent vista if you ride the tram to the top. Take the short hike from the tram building to the observation deck. It's just a five-minute easy walk with little elevation gain. The views you will see on a clear day will take your breath away! The tram ride is safe and fast. Good food at the top too!
  • Nice mountain to visit during fall days. You can see fall foliage all around from the tram and from top. There is a tower on top of mountain, from where you get view of all sides, on clear day, you can see quite far. There is cafeteria on top, prices are very reasonable. Excellent staff.
