Great little mountain! Skiied there with family a couple times, and visited in Summer for first time this year. Beautiful views from Chairlift, and a nice hike down.

We took the summer chair lift ride to the top of McCauley Mountain. It was a very warm, windy day and the view was clear and beautiful. With the cost of $5 to ride up and back, it was a bargain!

My husband and I have lived in this area for 30 years and had never been to this attraction until last weekend. We had visitors over from the UK and wanted to show them the difference between New York City (which they had visited earlier in their vacation) and New York Adirondacks. We had a spectacularly nice day, low humidity... More

Ski center in winter with special events(winter fest). Nice chair lift in 3 seasons, especially beautiful in fall. Value priced

Every year we take the ride to the top of McCauley Mountain. We simply cannot get enough of this place! You can clearly see the beauty of the Adirondack Mountains from this location!

We love the chairlift to the top of the mountain. The views from the top are so beautiful. It gives you a great perspective on the area and a glimpse into how vast the Adirondack Mountains are. It's worth the $6 for this ride and contributing to the mountain's operations. Don't just stand at the the top. Take your time... More

Went up the mountain on the chair lift in August. Great views, has some trails for hiking. Worth the trip.

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.
