Beautiful views from the top. Trams go up and down every 15 minutes. Relatively cheap (about $4 round trip).

The Inclined Plane is a piece of history that shouldn't be missed. We had never been so we stopped by on a trip to visit family. Well worth the $4 charge. You can actually transport your car on it! Fascinating piece of engineering and I'm...More
