The white mountain hotel restaurant is an excellent place for dinner. All prices are reasonable and not out of line. The food was great, the chef does waders with the sauces. The pork chop was superb, my wife's lamb was very tender and was cut with a fork . I would highly recommend.

We did a long rock climb here and it was tremendous for two out-of-shape parents and their very fit 18-year old daughter. We have done a lot of climbing so didn't need a guide but saw guided parties having fun.

This mountain is situated above Echo Lake in Echo Lake State Park and is aptly named. The entire mountain, and the ledge, are entirely reflected in the lake below. Absolutely breathtaking.

Good hike from Cathedral Ledge (the point you can drive to). Great views and some good steep parts of the trail (not too many, so I would not call it "difficult" but maybe "moderate.").

Very difficult to get to from Echo State Park. The views from Echo Lake and Cathedral Ledge made our failed excursion to White Horse Ledge worth it. Definitely a must see!!

Reminds me of Yosemite valley, although smaller: sheer granite cliffs with a verdant river valley below. There is a pleasant half mile walk from parking to the edge. Best views will be in the late afternoon with sun behind you.

We didn't have a lot of time to climb here, and had to back off the one route we started - but it was fun while it lasted. As with most old-school slab crags, the runouts will keep you focused. Definitely R rated on Standard Direct: make sure your belayer can dodge you if you fall at the crux!
