“Just a little too late”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

We enjoyed the ride but unfortunately we were about 2 weeks too late for the good colors of fall. We did get some good pictures though and it was a beautiful day in Old Forge.

“great place for a full day of fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

We had a quite picnic at the bottom of the mountain . we usually take the lift to the top but decided to try something different, to our surprise there is an entire trail system on the opposite side near the parking lot. Old ski trails lead around a lake and well marked trails lead to a couple "surprises" located on the opposite mountain top, the view is outstanding and there are far less people on this side . We encountered some wildlife and had a great day enjoying the autumn leaves. we will definitely be doing this again.next year.

“Great View of Mountains”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

Well worth the trip up the mountain. Pack a picnic lunch or snack you won't want to come back down the mountain.

“A must for peak foliage!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

Opens @ 9:30 am and the mid early morning is best to go bc the line get's long quick. BUT all worth the wait. The Last weekend in September is usally peak season for the trees and WOW! It was amazing. Bring a lunch and enjoy the views, maybe check for the wind first LOL.

“Scenic treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

I am not a skier, but I always ride the chairlift to enjoy the view in the Summer. Well worth the inexpensive charge for the ride! Take a picnic lunch up and soak in the vistas.
