If you're not up to a climb, this area is great. You can drive up to Cathedral Ledge and enjoy fantastic views! Grab your camera and strike a pose! Great way to be able to see a tremendous view. And it's free!

A short but steep drive takes you to the top where you follow a short trail to the vista for a stunning view of Echo Lake, the Saco River, and the White Mountains. There are rocky areas to negotiate, but nothing strenuous. It is well worth a trip!

Worth the trip - amazing views - you get a real bird's eye view of the mountains and the valley. The fence makes you feel safe.

Situated close to North Conway this is accessible by car and there is no charge to park. Views from the Ledge are amazing.

Wow, what a view! If you're up to it the hike up to Cathedral Ledge is a good one. You can also drive up. Either way it's very pretty.

This is a short ride and a short, easy walk up to the top edge of a sheer precipice. There IS of course a fence. You can also see the ledge from the bottom across Echo Lake. People climb the cliff face, technical climbing with all sorts of gear. I've always found this kind of interesting. You can see them... More

Nice place to take the kids and explore with top of the hill hiking. The only downside that day was a couple of bikers that decided to drink and toss beer cans

Easy hike to the top from the parking lot and a beautiful view. I took a detour away from the main path and saw a little different view.
