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.

Beautiful views, friendly staff! It looks like they are adding some features. A chalet was under remodel. The bathrooms were very nice. We enjoyed the ride

A small ski area with so much to offer. Great trails range in difficulty. Nice, easy glades. We were there on a "busy" day and the longest lift line was probably an 8 minute wait. Looking forward to going back soon!

This was my first stop and really my first exposure to the gorgeous fall foliage of this region. They only take cash so be aware of that. The ride up was spectacular but the ride down was even better. Views at the top were like...More

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