  • This is a ski lift used off season to bring people to the top of the mountain. We visited when the trees were in their peak. What more can I say?

  • It is absolutely beautiful. The way up on the lift was amazing. The top had a gorgeous view and trails to hike. Going down had breath taking views.
  • Always a nice spot to stop and visit during the spring and fall. Haven't been there during thr winter so I can't really speak much for the skiing. The view in top is breathtakingly beautiful.
  • Always love visiting the Mountain when We are there. Awesome views of the Lakes 🤘
  • We recently had the pleasure of riding the chair lift to the top of McCauley Mountain to take in the breathtaking views. Our little one rode for free, while the two adults paid a very reasonable fee for the adventure. The staff here were very friendly and the views were marvelous. Well worth a visit when you are in Old Forge!
  • A great visit for the non-hiker in your family- take a chairlift!
