Great hike. Not for those that are scared of heights. Takes about 45 mins to hike up..lots of leaves had fallen and were a bit slippery going up so took the road down. The view is spectacular!

We went on a Thursday and there was no one around. Very peaceful, quiet and majestic. Great photo opportunities as very imposing view from the ground looking up.

Close to North Conway, this is definitely worth a visit. Access is very easy as you drive up the winding Cathedral Ledge Road and park at the end loop - parking is limited so you may have to park a bit further down the road.

The walk was hard and many drover their cars up there to a very small area. Go there when there are less crowds. But the view..

This is a must if you are in the N. Conway area! If you don't want to hike or climb the rock face then you can just drive up to the top. The view of the valley is well worth your time.
