A Great Investment

Forget the hours spent trudging up and down the stairs from the dock, patio, garage, etc. to the house. Hill Hiker® residential hillside elevator lifts and funicular trams provide a convenient way to get your family, friends and supplies safely up and down steep inclines.

Installing a Hill Hiker® outdoor residential elevator adds value to your property too. Many Hill Hiker® customers benefit from higher re-sale value and a wider network of potential buyers because of the increased accessibility to their property.

  • Gain access from high elevations to lakeshore, ocean or riverfront
  • Traverse steep inclines between home to garage, garden, pool, golf course, etc.
  • Enhance mobility for the elderly or disabled, and small children

The 60 steps from the garage to the house got to be too much for my bad knees. We purchased a Hill Hiker® allowing us to stay in our 'dream house with a view' through our retirement years. We recommend the Hill Hiker® to all those people with physical challenges who still want to stay in their elevated home settings.

Henry & Rose L., San Francisco, California

My wife and I spent many hours researching hillside lift systems and safety was our main concern. The Hill Hiker®'s safety system is 'second to none.' Their captured rail system is unique to the 'ride-on-top-of-the-rails' designs offered by others. We are very satisfied with the lift system we purchased from Hill Hiker, Inc.

John & Heather B., Annapolis, Maryland

As builders (contractors), we were very particular with the fit and finish of the Hill Hiker® lift system we purchased. After all, the upscale neighborhood that we were developing would require nothing but the finest hillside lift equipment for its residents. The Hill Hiker® came through delivering the finest quality at a reasonable cost.

Jim K., Asheville, North Carolina

Our Hill Hiker® installation was great! Their crew was prompt, courteous and got the job done when they said they would. The lift has changed our lake shore living by allowing us to really utilize the lake! Thanks Hill Hiker!
