We usually hike when visiting the Adirondacks, but had limited time this trip. We decided the chair lift could be an option. We were not disappointed! It's so beautiful up at the top of McCauley Mt. There are a few places to wander and scenic vistas are stunning ! Definetly worth $6 a ticket !

We went at the end of the day to the top. What a great view! It's not an all day event, however it's a nice way to end the day after a hike.

Scary but super fun with kids. Great view at the top. If you like, you can walk the short path down the mountain. Our kids wanted to ride down, which was terrifying but provided a stupendous view.

The Scenic Chair Lift up to McCauley Mountain was wonderful. When we got to the top we wondered around to see beautiful views. There is a very short hike (about 20 Mins) that was fun for my family. Took a tons of pictures and took the chair lift back down. We all felt it was worth the $6 for the... More

Took a ride up the McCauley Mtn chairlift while on a trip to Old Forge. Very pleasant, peaceful and quiet ride. Nice views of Fourth Lake from the top. We even saw the PV Clearwater returning from an excursion.

The skiing is great - some easy and some difficult trails. Great snow and a good set of employees. A fun place.

Visited again this year! Beautiful sights and great staff. Did the 20 minute hike at the peak and relaxed in the chairs while the kids picked wild raspberries. Worth it every year!

Rode the chairlift up the mountain. Enjoyed the scenery. Overlooks some of the Fulton Chain of Lakes. Can see as far as Whiteface Mountain near Lake Placid. Chose to walk down the mountain (about .8 mi.) to the parking lot.

Cost $22 for two adults and 2 children. Gets up to the top in about 10 minutes and you can get out and enjoy the very scenic views of Old Forge and the Fulton Chain of Lakes. You can take the chair back down or you can walk down. We decided to walk, not that bad, less than 1 mile.... More

The chairlift ride is only $6 per person. It's a simple 10 minute ride to the top of the mountain where you will be treated to views of the Fulton Lakes and the high peaks. There are picnic tables and Adirondack Chairs for you to savor the view. You have the option to ride the chair lift or hike down... More
