A short chairlift takes you ro the summit of McCauley Mona in ad great views of Old Forge, Fourth Lake and the surrounding geography. In October with the trees coloring it is breath-taking.

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...More
