My family has been coming up to Old Forge for 7 or 8 years now and this is the first year we took the chairlift to the top of the mountain. I can't believe we waited so long! What a great time! The ride up is full of fantastic views of the area. The mountains, lakes and all of the... More

Six bucks is totally worth it. Great for a first date or just family. Two people per chair only and its not a good idea to go on this ride if you cant control your children because its a very looonnng way down so please exercise good judgment. The scene is absolutely beautiful and will take your breath away.

Took a ride up on the chairlift and found the views spectacular. You can see all the way to Mt. Marcy. It was definitely worth the $6. If you feel guilty about riding up you can always walk down. Everyone was very nice and I look forward to returning this winter to ski the slopes.

We spent a few bucks and rode the chairlift up to the top -- walked around and took in the SPECTACULAR view from several of the trails. There are Adirondack chairs up there for taking a break (pack a lunch and stay a while!). The view as you ride back down is gorgeous. Definitely worth the drive back to this... More

We loved the chair lift - you also have the option to hike up and down. When you get to the top they have places you can sit and take the view in if you like. My son and I went back a second time and walked down, pretty easy hike down. Also, wanted to mention that the people that... More

My bf and I weren't able to make the lift last year during the autumn season because we arrived late in the day and it was PACKED! So, word of advice - when the trees start to change, get there as soon as you can! We went up last month and the cost for an adult ticket is $6. After... More

Recently took the chairlift to the summit. The views are breathtaking!! So was the walk back down. Happened to be there when the lift broke down. No one caught on it but those at the top had to walk back down. Not a bad walk on the service road. Did not try an actual hiking trail because we were not... More

We took a short drive from Old Forge Camping Resort to McCauley Mountain to ride the chair lift. What a hidden gem! It seems like very few people venture to this ski resort in the summer to ride the lift to the top of the mountain. But those that do are greeted with some of the most amazing views you... More

Took the ski lift up. The view is beautiful. Snapped a few photos. Went on a short hike on the trail and took the ski lift back down.
