It's well worth the $6 adult ticket for a breath taking view of Old Forge and Fourth Lake! A must do!

When I was visiting the Old Forge I saw the advertisement to go on the chairlift during the summer. Pleasant staff, nice ride. Excellent views of the surrounding countryside. People were either taking the chairlifts back down or hike. Generally a pleasant day.

If you're in Old Forge please consider this scenic chairlift. $6 bucks a person, chairlift up the mountain and views can't be beat. Great for families as well. Trails at the top you can also explore. Will def be back to see fall foliage!!

We went on the chairlift ride at McCauley Mountain. We weren't sure what to expect but had a great time. The ride was cheap and lasted less then a half hour. The views were stunning! I bet it would be beautiful in the fall!

We took a ride on the scenic chair lift and the views from the top were great! You got to see the entire surrounding area! Definitely would be coming back to do this again!

Great views from the top and on the ride down. Met some new friends at the top (always nice when someone offers to take your picture at a special spot)

Great views and friendly staff. The guys were helpful with getting on the chairs. Peaceful. Price was reasonable---$6.00 for 1 adult. You can take as long as you want at the top and ride or walk back down the mountain. Plenty of oarking.

A great chair lift ride to the top of McCauley Mnt. All four of us enjoyed the ride up and back. What a nice view.

I highly recommend taking the chair lift in the fall to see the colors, but we just went and it was fun. You get off at the top and can walk around or take pictures, then you can hike down or ride the chair lift...More

Five Corners Cafe is very good as is Billy's (Italian). We like Keys Pancake House for breakfast.
