“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

As part of our B&B tour we stayed in North Conway and I had researched things to do, so it was definitely on our agenda.
What a treat! We drove right to the parking area and found a spot immediately. I have to mention that parking is fairly limited, but there is enough of "coming and going" that you'll always be able to find a spot with short delay. The views from the top are magnificent; all walking and viewing areas are fenced in and very secure. It's a bit of up and down over uneven terrain to get to them, so I don't personally think it's wheel chair accessible or at least I didn't notice any access. You can spend an hour or so just "looking" and if you're lucky you'll see some rock climbers coming up the "wall" since it's a really popular rock climbing spot. We did, and there climbers LINED UP at the bottom to do so.
There is no admittance fee and it's a must see attraction that I can highly recommend!!

“Best Part of North Conway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Don't miss it. The view is breathtaking and you get to talk to rock climbers. The view from above is spectacular. It's free to drive or walk to the top.

“Great Hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

A great hike to the top. Great views, and a great workout! Not for the not in shape, as a caveat. Pack a lunch/snack and hang out for a bit.
