Fantastic view
Oct 2021
The views are magnificent as is the large slab of granite rock face that you can see from the top. Part of the summit is surrounded by fence and part is not – further up to the right, and over the granite. You get beautiful views from the entire area. Be careful on the granite. At one point, I was trying to come down on a not too steep area with a very short drop and I slipped as the granite was slightly wet – and it’s a sick feeling when you are sliding and can not do anything to stop yourself. Again, I only slid a very short distance into some dirt and a tree – and so no harm done at all (other than dirt on my pants), but given the steep drops near the edge, it obviously could have been much worse. Hold on to kids in the area that is not fenced.

Beautiful views from up high - and you don't have to climb up!
Oct 2021
We drove up the road to Cathedral Ledge and parked, then walked to the cliff edge which is well fenced, so OK for kids and dogs. The view on a sunny day was beautiful, and it was interesting trying to get our bearings on the view. I spotted Cranmore Mountain ski area to the right. This is a good view for those who cannot climb up. We could see climbers below attempting to scale the Ledge.

Cathedral ledge is very easy to get to, and it is a nice viewpoint. I only gave it a rating of four because so many of the other attractions in the area are outstanding. This is a nice spot with a very low cost to visit and is easy to access. Views are good.

A Pretty Summit It Is
Aug 2021
A 1-mile road leads to the 1,159' summit of Cathedral Ledge. You can drive it, walk it or bike it. Nice view of several mountain ranges with massive outcroppings of rocks that you can walk on. Great views, just don't get too close to the edge of the rocks. There's one place with a fence which is safe for children, but several others areas have no fencing. That's fine; people need to watch their kids and be respectful of this beautiful summit.

Worth seeing

Such a pretty drive up to the top and we enjoyed seeing the ledge and exploring around a bit. The trees are just starting to change color and it was fun to see the town below.

Worth a drive up for the amazing views of Echo Lake, the valley, the ski runs across the valley. Beautiful

Unbelieveable Views
Sep 2021
Worth seeing. The views are breathtaking. Easy walk for anyone. Got to see people actually climbing the ledge while we were there.

How can you go wrong with free (ok they have an honor system for admission)?
Sep 2021 • Couples
We were looking to do something a little adventurous (for us) and driving to the top of a mountain met what we were looking for.
The road was curvy and steep in places but not bad as it was a fairly short drive.
The views were breath taking , especially when looking over the edge.
Love this place and will be back.

Let Your Car Do Hike!

This is one of the few mountaintops you can access by car in the area. It is definitely worth doing! There is adequate parking since there is not much to do once you're at the top other than enjoy the view for a little while and drive back down to your next adventure.
