Rim Trail junction

As I neared the summit, I came to a confusing sign at a junction. The sign says "Rim Trail" (which is not a trail on the AMC guide map).

The sign doesn't tell you which way to go to get to the summit. I wandered over to the aerial tramway station. I'd seen a couple trams moving slowly up and down on my way up, so I thought this might be the summit.

The station had a cafeteria and restrooms, but I didn't bother to go in. I could tell the summit was higher up, so I wandered back the way I came, passing the sign again.

Just past the sign is a set of stationary binoculars. You need to put in two quarters to use them. Reminder for next time; I don't usually carry spare change with me when hiking.
