What are Lake Trams?

Lakeside, Lakeshore, Waterfront, Ocean, Edgewater, Beach, etc. Lifts, Trams & Elevators are all just different ways to refer to what we traditionally call an inclined elevator or hillside tram. Some even refer to our systems as a cottage lifts or trams due to their traditional use at lake cottages and cabins.

Whatever you call them, Hill Hiker, Inc. specializes solely in the manufacture and installation of these outdoor inclined cable driven elevator systems. Each Hill Hiker ® lift system is custom designed for your individual needs and can be installed almost anywhere worldwide.
