Great views!

This attraction has a wonderful view, though it's a little scary and steep for young children. There aren't any picnic tables to sit and eat but people did eat on the ground.

Awesome views and easy to get to by car followed by a short walk. Some nice ramps have been added since we were there last year, that made it easier to get over the rocks. Before we would have to jump down a bit, which was fine for younger people but a little more tricky for those less stable. Fun... More

Beautiful views. We saw it from a distance hiking and then went to visit the ledge. The views were amazing. At times you can catch climbers coming up and over the top. Beautiful and a must stop on your trip

Although Cathedral Ledge certainly doesn't rank among the highest peaks in the White Mountains, it still offers a spectacular view that is accessible both by car and on foot. Personally, I believe the view is much more rewarding after you earn it by hiking up the relatively short but moderately steep trail that begins in Echo Lake State Park. In... More

Great hike for the family....a little steep for the anxiety-ridden like yours truly. But the top is worth it! And you can always walk down the road for the way back. Or just drive up.:)

Perfect little hike for small children and the elderly. Not difficult to walk at all. Just make sure the little ones don't go wandering off . would not bring a dog though , to many places they could run off to and fall to their death.

We are staying at Wills Inn right around the corner from the cathedral lodge. 10 minute drive and i must say i was stunned by such beauty and how this exists in New Hampshire. The Appalachian Mountain range is the oldest range on the planet. Its awe and sheer size of it makes one stop to think. Bring the family... More
