You need to do this if you visit the Albuquerque area. And do the hike up to the small house. You won't regret it!

If you are going to just look around, an hour is fine. If you are going to hike, it depends on how much hiking you do. We did not hike so we where there for about an hour. Dinner in the restaurant at the base was excellent
best time to go?

We went at about 5 pm. The tram was not crowded and by the time you arrive back at the base station the sun is beginning to go down and we watched it disappear from the comfort of Sandiago's grill.
