I was in Old Forge snowmobiling with my sons and took a day for snowboarding at McCauley Mountain. I have been here several times with my family and we have always enjoyed it. Skiing at this small community mountain is a real pleasure. Everything here you want. Nice trails, reasonable rates, ski rentals, and a snack bar. If you want... More

We went with another couple and it was such a fun time. It was fall so all the leaves were turning and the view of the water was just breath taking. My friend even brought a bottle of wine so when we got to the top we all got to toast together with a beautiful view.

For $6.00, you need to ride the ski lift just to go to the top of the mountain and sit and enjoy the view. Even the ride from Old Forge up the mountain was nice.

The ride to the top of the mountain is a thrilling experience! I try not to look down because I'm afraid of heights but the view is just spectacular! At the top you can sit in various Adirondack chairs spread in various areas with awesome views and just enjoy the scenery and the foliage. It's a great place to visit.... More

The chair lift was a wonderful trip up, for outstanding views for many miles around, and at $6 it was a real bargain.

We went her for the first time with our two sons (ages 14 and 11). Price was reasonable $6 for adults and $5 for children. Nice ride up with beautiful views of the area. Once you get to the top there is a 20 minute trail walk that was enjoyable. Also there are look-out points at the top of the... More

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
