This is the place to see the fall colors. Take the ski lift to the top and be amazed. Every color for miles and miles. The view of the many lakes is amazing as well. Don't miss it.

Not expensive at $6.00 per adult. Don't expect a giant mountain, it's not the Rockies, but was worth the ride up. There's a nice view from several angles if you're into photography. The guys working were pleasant enough.

Skiing in the winter or hiking in the summer, you'll love this little mountain. Great views from the top, great trails. If you enjoy nature I highly recommend McCauley.

We visited Old Forge in October while taking the Adirondack scenic railroad. We took the shuttle to the mountain. The views were amazing... We took beautiful photos
