We went for the scenic chair lift and did the hike at the top. The chair lift provided great views of the mountains and lakes. The hike at the top was blocked by trees, not complaining, just wouldn't recommend hiking the top for views. The admission price was very reasonable and it was a lovely day. Very enjoyable time. Also,... More

On my bucket list was trying to overcome my fear of heights. It was a beautiful, sunny day. Everything was green and lush. We were hoping to see more color but it was adequate. When we reached the top of the chair lift, the attendant helped me get off the chair. The view at the top was worth my overcoming... More

Very very old school. Operated by friendly locals. No place to get a soda or snack. Not even sure where the bathrooms might be. Parking is in fields, narrow windy roads but to be expected. Deer hang out along the road as trees line either side. Worth the $6 for leaf peeping and sweeping views.

The experience was great. We were a little hesitant because of the height, we had small children along, but all was worth it. The view at the top was amazing. You could see the many lakes and mountains all around. We hiked a little on the trails at the top before we returned to the bottom. The price was affordable... More

A summertime review. A short ride from the middle of Old Forge. $5.00 for seniors and children and worth it. Only takes about 5 min. for the chairlift to reach the top. Spectacular views of the chain of lakes and even the high peaks. My grandson is 11 and was thrilled. Spend as much time atop McCauley then a pleasant... More

Too bad it was overcast and very hazy on this particular day I went but the views would be outstanding in the fall colors of got to be beautiful. I will... More
