LOVE IT

Great place to climb, hike, or just to see the views. There is a road to the top, if you are not wanting to pull yourself up the face!

This place is incredible. The views are spectacular and even more so in the fall. I have been here many times over the years. In the summer time you can look down and see mountain climbers coming up the face of the rock. If you get a chance, go sit by the lake below. It will cost you a few... More

The Cathedral ledge is an amazing view you can see the whole North Conway Valley.It is a great place to take pictures.The ledge is not to much of a drive up from th valley floor .Very easy access steep in one place but not bad at all.There is a very beautiful view of Echo Lake from the top.

Cathedral Ledge offers a wonderful scenic view of the North Conway area. There are opportunities to hike and if you are so bold - even rock climbing!

We took the easy way up - drove to the top of the ledge and so its only a short walk to the ledge itself where you get a great perspective of the surrounding mountains. There were a few people actually climbing the ledge on the day we visited and we watched as a couple made it to the top.... More

It's a nice easy hike for a beautiful view. The view is spectacular. We were able to capture the last of the fall foliage. We had to stop for photos

even on a very overcast and slightly damp November Saturday, it was a spectacular view of the Mt. Washington Valley ... with a wee bit of snow to be see on the upper trails of Wildcat. Definitely worth going up and taking the view!

It was a nice and easy walk, get to see a stunning autumn colour especially on clear sunny day. We stayed at North Conway, so this is a short drive in the morning.

The view from Cathedral Ledge is breath taking. You get a great view of the entire area with beautiful foliage. This is a VERY easy walk (basically you get out of your car and walk a couple hundred feet). Little effort for a beautiful view. There are nice flat rocks that would be great to bring a picnic lunch to... More
