This is our 2nd stay at this location over the past 5 years. I try hard not to judge on the first visit, but last time the room needed repairs, and this week is not different. Mold in bathroom, tile does not meet together from one room to another, bugs and dirt in the light fixtures, and just not clean.... More

Cathedral Ledge is accessible for even the creaky and weary. Spry visitors can race on up. Rocky cliffs and valley views including Echo Lake looking tiny in the distance are the rewards. You are in the beautiful White mountains of New Hampshire. Might as well get out and see it.

From a distance (Echo Lake shore) the rockface looked high and sheer with climbers no bigger than ants clinging to its face. It really is steep ( the clutch was smoking alarmingly after the climb), but well worth it for the wonderful views .

You can drive up to the top from which after a very short walk you get a breathtaking view of the area. Climbers were ascending when we were there which is an extra bonus. Must see.

This was a great take, you must be able to walk up hills. Trail wasn't the easiest, but doable. The view was worth the view

This is a 600 plus foot shear rock wall that is accessible via a short road trip to the top. The panoramic view from the top is stunningly beautiful. This is a must see minutes outside North Conway, NH.

We drove up because we had finished two other hikes earlier in the day. It was a lovely view of the farmland surrounding.

The most amazing views ever. I was terrified to be up so high and near a shear cliff. I snapped pics from a distance. Do not take a big truck or RV up the road. it's a very steep mountain road. most amazing views

Wow! The view of the ledge and on the top of the ledge are amazing! Def a place to visit!! Short walk from the parking area to the ledge and it's fenced in for safety.
