“Awesome view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2006

fortunately, you don't have to climb up the steep face of the Ledge to get to the top. You can cheat by driving on a road situated a short distance behind the precipice. Park you car and you're just a short walking distance away from a truly awesome view. There is fencing almost at the edge, so you can walk right up to what would be your doom if you slipped and fell off. The fencing is high enough to protect to you or a young one from falling, but does not obstruct the view. A place you must go to while in North Conway.

I have stayed at the Hale's White Mtn Inn, located at the foot of the Ledge. That's a terrible hotel, but the view of the ledge is amazing from that property. It's worth taking a drive to the parking lot of the White Mtn Inn to get a different perspective of the Cathedral Ledge terrain... but DON'T bother staying at that hotel. The negative reviews of the property are correct, gorgeous view of the Ledge notwithstanding.
