Neither my wife or I are great with heights, so we took in Cathedral Ledge from ground view by hiking the trail around Echo Lake. What a wonderful experience! We chose to take our walk in the morning before the bugs started to get too busy. It was so nice and peaceful, quiet, and serene...a far cry from daily life... More

My oldest son and I visited here last year, in the dark to sky gaze. This year we brought my youngest along for a daytime trip. The first obvious thing, is anyone can drive to the top (and I did both time as well). But we also hiked down and up again. A steep climb it is! Great views from... More

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!

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.

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.
