We saw it while driving. We were glad we, at least, saw it. A daughter and her family said that it was beautiful, They had visited a few months prior.

Short drive from Bartlett or North Conway. The 1 mile road to the top is closed in the winter. Limited parking at the top. Very short walk thru the woods from the top of the road to granite top of the hill and wonderful views to the East.

Great place to climb, hike, or just to see the views. There is a road to the top, if you are not wanting to pull yourself up the face!

This place is incredible. The views are spectacular and even more so in the fall. I have been here many times over the years. In the summer time you can look down and see mountain climbers coming up the face of the rock. If you get a chance, go sit by the lake below. It will cost you a few... More

The Cathedral ledge is an amazing view you can see the whole North Conway Valley.It is a great place to take pictures.The ledge is not to much of a drive up from th valley floor .Very easy access steep in one place but not bad at all.There is a very beautiful view of Echo Lake from the top.

Cathedral Ledge offers a wonderful scenic view of the North Conway area. There are opportunities to hike and if you are so bold - even rock climbing!

We took the easy way up - drove to the top of the ledge and so its only a short walk to the ledge itself where you get a great perspective of the surrounding mountains. There were a few people actually climbing the ledge on the day we visited and we watched as a couple made it to the top.... More

It's a nice easy hike for a beautiful view. The view is spectacular. We were able to capture the last of the fall foliage. We had to stop for photos
