Taking a turn off Main Street in Conway, up first Washington Street and then West Side Road, after a few miles you come across signs for this attraction. The drive is easy with only one particular steep bit, although I guess they do close the...More

Just a beautiful spot high above the North Conway Valley. In the summer climbers climb the ledges. Very impressive spot that you can drive to

Drive up and enjoy a gorgeous view!!! Summer or Fall it’s an easy drive up and short walk to gorgeous views!! Grab a sandwich and coffee in town and have a fun picnic - take your trash with you please!

We had been to the base many times and watched the rock climbers, but this was the first time we drove up to the top. We lunched there and the view was magnificent. There are no picnic tables, so be prepared to sit on the...More

Stunning view of the landscape in North Conway, and some very nice hikes and short trails giving options to see more of the area. Beware of climbers!

Started the day here. Incredible views but stay back. Quite a drop. They don't call it Cathedral Ledge for nothing. It has a chain link fence around part of it but there is an open side where rock climbers repel down it.

Just a short drive up to the top, then a short walk gives dramatic views of surrounding valley and mountains. Fun to explore too.

Short walk to an amazing view. My husband and I visited last week and enjoyed the site. I was able to take several gorgeous photos.

Lived up there for 20+ years. The only gate there is when they close the road from the winter months to when the snow is gone in the spring. You can pretty much access the top any time the gate is not closed.

The fenced area is about 50ft... but there is a section to the left of this area that is not! That area is very dangerous because one wrong step, it down to the bottom!
