I have gotten to visit the Ledge twice -- once in the summer and once in the fall, and both times were glorious. The fall colors made it particularly breathtaking. The walk out to the ledge is an easy one. Parking can be a bit of a challenge if you come at a time when lots of other visitors are... More

Spectacular mountain view, without all that pesky climbing! Seriously worth the short drive up. Once you are at the top you forget that you are only a few hours north of the chaos of boston. Very serene and calming.

The views are incredible!! It is well worth the short drive up the mountain to see this. Go to the highest point without the fence for the best views!

Visited here after going to Diana's Baths and the views were really wonderful. Parking is right by the ledge, which has fencing around it for safety. The walk is short and easy. The drive is not so scary going to the top. The grade is a bit steep at some parts but you are surrounded by trees the whole way... More

Beautiful. Excellent views. Very friendly to bring little ones although, like always, watch them closely. I recommend that everyone make the non required donation at the top parking lot. These natural wonders are free because of donations. Let's keep them that way. Just a few dollars compared to the extraordinary payments you make to some "attractions". Do nature a favor...donate...

Wow. What a picturesque scene. So nice to view. An absolute must see and do. Scary incline up the road. A definite must. Hiking trails around to take as well. Also near Susan's bath

It was a perfect thing to do with the kids. We drove up to the top and explored the views, which were amazing! It did not require much walking!

As a local, I think that no trip to N Conway would be complete without a drive up Cathedral Ledge. Stunning views of the valley and surrounding mtns. They just redid the path up to the viewing area so it is so much easier to access. You could even take a wheelchair up to parts of it. Don't miss this!
