Awesome views starting from the Resort looping up to White Horse ledge, then to Cathedral Ledge, down to Echo lake and back to the resort. If you like walking/hiking, this is a must. Took some great pictures to remember the trip.

Very pretty area. We enjoyed watching people rock climbing during the day as we enjoyed our day at Echo Lake State Park.
