Hiked the trail from the White Mountain Hotel and resort. Took 3 hrs. Very rocky, difficult climbs at times due to hard to read trail markings. Got caught in the rain half way up so once up top there was no view except of trees and fog.

Great view of the Mount Washington Valley, & relatively easy to get to, is you don't climb the face of the cliff. Just follow West Side Road to "Cathedral Ledge" to go to the top, or park in the White Mountain Hotel to look up at the rock climbers.

Short hike , the view is excellent, from the top. You can do a nice loop with the cathedral ledge ( 3.6 miles). It also can be excellent slab or ice climbing place .

If you like slab climbing, you really need to try White Horse. There are both easy and tough routes. Be prepared for a great full day of multipitch! Run outs that can play with your head, too! Do your research. You can go off route, and you should use more than one (70 meter) rope. My friends (the team after... More

We had a little trouble hiking up there because the trails were covered in leaves. It wouldn't have been a problem but some areas were steep and rocky. We had to be extra cautious where we stepped because the rocks becomes slippery due to the leaves. Even though this took some extra time and effort, we were well rewarded with... More

I'd like to try this trail again in the summer. In November, the trail was covered with leaves that hid the bare roots and granite boulders. We turned back half way up for fear of getting a sprained ankle.

We followed the yellow trail markers from the White Mountain Hotel. The hike to the summit and viewing area took us about 2 hours. We did the complete loop up and over which was tougher going down -

We hiked from the Echo Lake State Park parking lot up the Bryce Path to Cathedral Ledged, then across to WhieHorse Ledge, then down the way we came. Perfect afternoon hike of about 3 1/2 miles with some interesting steep areas and fantastic views.

Russell the bartender did a great job serving and entertaining us as we waited for the dining room to open. When they did open they filled up very quickly, that said the dining room service was very good and the kitchen timing was reasonable. The menu has everything from lobster to sandwiches and everything we ordered was enjoyable. They offer... More
