Most folks should drive to the top. If you're fairly fit, you can walk the road. If you're really fit and exercise regularly, walk up the mountain - there are several marked trails. My son and I walked the trail (he's five and is the youngest a regular local ever saw climb the mountain - it is STEEP). The views... More

This review is primarily for Rock Climbers and if you're a rock climber you don't need my review. But in the very slight chance that you have not heard of Cathedral or the Cookie Cliff or you don't climb but like cool things to see then read on. Rock Climbing history has taken place at this legendary bluff. Fritz Weisner,... More

We drove up to Cathedral Ledge by car, as we only had one day to explore White Mountains. What a pitty. If I knew NH was so beautiful, I would have planned a longer stay and definitely do the climb on foot. The views are breathtaking, especially if you step a little bit on the right from the main view... More

We stop here every year to take in the views. Make sure you visit on a clear day and you will be able to see for miles. The ledge has a fence for safety and requires climbing on some rocks to reach but WORTH it

We drove up for the views and were not adventurous enough to hike. It was a nice little side trip for us. I wish we had been a few weeks later when the foliage will be at peak.

We parked at Echo lake ($4/ person) to hike up to Cathedral Ledge. You could also park on the road to the top to begin the hike (I think that is slightly shorter). Not sure if there is a fee for that parking. Of course for those not looking for a challenge you can drive to the top. The approx... More

Great to have a good scenic lookout so near to town. Only took about 10 minutes to get there in the car and the view was terrific.

I always thought we would have to climb this to see the view! Not so! It's an easy drive up to the parking area and, at most, a two minute walk to the top of the Ledge. Well, of course, you can park below and walk up the road. Or, if you are so inclined and have the right equipment,... More

Great views from the Ledge. Great picture opportunities. You can drive all the way to the top so you don't have to walk on the trail to get up there... If you don't feel like walking.
